Department of Motor Vehicles - ergo, if someone seeks service from the Department of Motor Vehicles they must have a vehicle. If they have a vehicle they may drive to the nearest Department of Motor Vehicles office.

In this ever tightening budget I don't see that state increasing service to a satellite office.

I didn't even know there was a DMV satellite office in Clearlake. It's obvious DMV doesn't want everyone to know about it. Where is this satellite office located?

Didn't they build a new DMV office in Lakeport a couple years ago? If most of the population in Lake County lives in Clearlake, why didn't they build it there and then use the old DMV office in Lakeport as a satellite office? Sounds like typical political non-thinking to me.

As far as population and needs, yes, Clearlake made more sense for the DMV Office, but since Lakeport is the county seat that's probably why they got it. Same place as the courts, county offices, etc. I agree w/ Yellow Trike though. Give me a break. Not to mention there are Lake County Transit routes that take you about a block from the DMV office. And with the budget situation? Do you really think the state will pay rent, utilities, and STAFFING for a Clearlake office, to accommodate a few poor people? I'd rather see the tax money used to transport those poor people out of here--enough tax money has been wasted pointing poor people TO this county. Please.

The DMV office in Lakeport is located on the frontage road by Kathy Fowler, the Collage, UPS, and Quail Run Gym.

I think if they added another office in the county they might have a problem meeting the DMV minimum required wait time.

Its in the Safeway shopping center and is only open on Thursday. The line is very long, since this is the only day they are open, and the wait can be hours

If you haven't figured it out, our friends at the County of Lake will always choose to provide government jobs to the other end of the lake. It doesn't matter that simple logistics would make Clearlake a better location than Lakeport.
As a gesture of their goodwill toward the largest population center in the County(the City of Clearlake), County leaders gave us the county dump.
The latest County government manipulated fiasco (Lowes) brings to mind the time when K-mart wanted to locate in clearlake. The County government put up a fuss, and K-mart ended up in lakeport.
Years later, the manipulation backfired, and Walmart built in Clearlake. Karma will strike the County GOB's again with this Lowes fiasco.

The satellite office is in the same plaza that Safeway is. I believe it's near the nail salon and the bar Reflections.
