DPS Actions Being Taken to Address Drivers License Overcrowding

August 8, 2018

Since late last week when media reports of excessive wait times at Drivers’ License Mega Centers (including Carrollton) I have been in regular contact with the leadership team at the Department of Public Safety and Governor Abbott’s office discussing a solution to this problem.  Attached is a list of actions that will be taken by DPS beginning August 9th to help reduce wait times. While not the total long term solution, it will help. I appreciate the work Governor Abbott and his team did to address this situation quickly and the Dallas Morning News for highlighting the problem.  I will continue to monitor the situation and will help work to provide a more permanent solution in the upcoming legislative session.
