Wrangell’s Division of Motor Vehicles office shut its doors on September 9 and remains closed until further notice. 

The Wrangell DMV says there are not any qualified DMV staff in Wrangell.

That’s according to a statement on the DMV’s Facebook page. It says the Wrangell office will reopen when there are trained staff to receive appointments, but does not give a timeline. 

The post also apologizes to those who were on the DMV appointments waiting list. 

People with questions or concerns are directed to call the state DMV line at 907-269-5551, or visit Alaska.gov/DMV.
