DRAPER, Utah — Most Department of Motor Vehicles location in Utah are closed due to the coronavirus outbreak,

There are just a few DMV offices that offer drive-through services including the one in Draper.

The drive-through opened at 6 a.m. Monday morning, and many motorists told Fox 13 they were in line two to three hours before getting to the front of the line.

"I got here at five this morning and just sat at the bottom of the hill for an hour and then it only took an hour to get up to the window," Isaac Akiyama said. "It was all right. You’re like one of the lucky ones." Reporter: "Yeah have you heard that people have been camping out longer?" Akiyama: "Yeah. I had a buddy come here last week and he spent six hours in line waiting."

We covered these long lines back on April 3, almost a month ago.

Since then, officials have made a few changes including extending hours, but there are still long wait times.

The DMV is reminding drivers to prepare to wait which can sometime be several hours.

It also reminds motorists to make sure what they're trying to do can actually be done at the drive through.

Most registration renewals are actually required to be processed online or by mail.

The Davis County Sheriff’s Office shared video on twitter showing long lines in Farmington on Friday when the wait time was about three hours.

Farmington City police had to provide traffic control.

Many of the services, from renewals to reporting sold cars, can be completed online.

Motorists are encouraged to try the online option first.
