WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH)– Most DMV offices will reopen on Wednesday, January 28 at 7:45 a.m. following Tuesday’s closure due to the storm. DMV’s Putnam Office and Cheshire Testing Center will remain closed on Wednesday due to storm-related issues, while all other DMV offices will open at their regularly scheduled time.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy has also ordered an extension of expiration dates for motor vehicle registrations and driver’s licenses due to the winter storm.

The Governor’s action on expirations covers dates and periods of validity for motor vehicle registrations, licenses, permits, certificates and other forms of credentials issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles and runs through January 30. This also covers emissions test late fees.

The extension period runs from January 24, when a snow storm shuttered DMV offices, to midnight on Friday, January 30. On January 31, all required late fees and penalties will resume.

On Monday, DMV also announced that all knowledge and road skills tests for license applicants were canceled for Tuesday and Wednesday (January 27 and 28) due to the storm.
