Parts of California are beginning to re-open under the governor's 4-step plan, including some DMV's.

When the San Luis Obispo DMV opens Thursday morning, it will offer limited in-person services for the first time in two months.

The SLO DMV is one of 46 field offices re-opening across the state this week, though some others did re-open with limited services earlier this month.

The Higuera Street DMV is the only Central Coast location to open Thursday.

Prior appointments canceled due to the coronavirus restrictions are being rescheduled but behind-the-wheel drive tests are still suspended.

Student drivers with temporary licenses that expired over the past two months received a 6-month extension.

The doors of the DMV open to people with appointments starting at 8 a.m., masks and social distancing are required inside.

Customers are still encouraged to use online services when possible.

Staff will have access to wipes, hand sanitizer, face shields, and gloves. Sneeze guards are also being installed.
