The Centennial Blvd. Driver Services Center is piloting a new system that allows you to “Join the Line” via text, phone, or the web site. The options provided to “Join the Line” are available during the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. If the number of people in line are determined to be the number that can be provided service during office hours, the line will close and be unavailable. You may check back later in the day or “Join the Line” on another business day.
