Bureau of Motor Vehicles to discontinue Kittery visits
AUGUSTA – The Bureau of Motor Vehicles is discontinuing its Kittery mobile unit visits as part of a realignment of services that will result in better customer service and improved bureau efficiency.
The BMV’s mobile units consist of two staff members who travel to 21 sites around the state that do not have a BMV office nearby. The units can process driver’s licenses and identification cards during their monthly visits.
- The mobile unit currently visits Kittery on the third Tuesday and following Wednesday of the month in the Naval Lodge, 11 Shapleigh Road, Kittery. The final visit will be on Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017.
The BMV will continue to serve customers at its 13 branch offices and remaining mobile unit sites located throughout the state. In Kittery, customers are invited to visit the nearby BMV branch office in Kennebunk at 63 Portland Road. Several BMV transactions can also be completed online at www.maine.gov/sos/bmv.
The realignment will allow for increased staffing levels at the BMV branch offices, which will lead to improved customer service. It will also result in cost savings by decreasing overtime and travel costs for mobile unit staff, as well as eliminating lease fees paid to mobile unit host sites.
