Saratoga County Clerk Craig A. Hayner today announced the Saratoga County DMV will offer limited in-person appointments to Saratoga County residents beginning Monday, June 15, 2020.  At this time, all appointments will be scheduled at the Ballston Spa and Clifton Park locations only.  Per Executive Order, the Wilton DMV office will remain closed to the public until restrictions on interior mall stores are lifted.

Customers who previously had appointments with Saratoga County DMV have been contacted and given priority appointments.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig A. Hayner said, “While our staff has been busy processing transactions customers mailed and dropped off to us during the statewide COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, we are eager to safely welcome customers back into our offices and provide these much needed DMV services to the good people of Saratoga County.”

The Saratoga County DMV is reopening with social distancing protocols in place. Staff will wear appropriate PPE and follow social distancing protocols. Customers must wear masks and follow all social distancing protocols. Only the individual needed to complete the transaction is allowed into the building unless someone is needed for assistance or is accompanying a minor.

Customers are asked to arrive no earlier than ten minutes before their appointment time and may be required to wait outside or in their vehicle after checking in, as only a limited number of people are allowed in the building at a time.  Those arriving more than five minutes late may forfeit their appointment due to expected high demand for appointments. Customers are asked to download and fill out necessary forms prior to their appointment. Forms are available at the County DMV’s website Customer ID is required at check in.

To make an appointment, please call (518) 383-2480 extension 3921, Monday through Friday 9:15A.M. to 4:45P.M.
