Customers can visit El Centro office during the relocation process
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles is alerting customers that the Brawley field office at 1175 E Main Street, will permanently close on Friday, November 12 at 5 p.m. The office is moving to a new location at 173 W Main Street, and is scheduled to open on Wednesday, December 1 at 9 a.m.
