Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles is alerting customers that the Banning field office at 1034 W. Ramsey St. will be closing permanently at 5 p.m. on Friday, February 17.

The decision to permanently close the Banning field office came after an inspection revealed major structural damage to the foundation. The DMV is searching for a temporary office space to serve the Banning community over the next 12 to 18 months until a new permanent location is available.

DMV team members from the Banning office will support nearby field offices. Customers can visit the following area offices:

  • Hemet, 1200 S. State St., 21 miles
