Licensing office to be temporarily closed


August 22, 2018

The Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) is preparing to launch a modernized driver licensing system at the end of August. In order to transition from the old system to the new one, all driver licensing offices statewide—of course including Goldendale—will be closed Friday, Aug. 31, and reopen Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The Goldendale office will be closed on Thursday, Sept. 6, and will reopen on Thursday, Sept. 13.

The DOL is encouraging people to go to the White Salmon, Sunnyside, or Union Gap offices during this time for service. It also warns to be prepared for possible longer wait times in those locations.
