COVID-19 Update

Driver and motor vehicle (DMV) offices have reopened for in-person services. 

Clients are encouraged to book an appointment in advance. Walk-in appointments are on first-come, first-served basis.

Yellowknife clients are advised to book an appointment in advance by emailing DMV@gov.nt.ca with the following information:

  • First and last name
  • Service you require (driver’s licence or vehicle registration)
  • Indicate whether you have obtained services previously at an issuing office

Precautions

  • Issuing offices have limited and varied capacity to ensure physically distancing. Clients are asked to wear masks and to refer to instructions from office staff. 
  • Staff are using hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and gloves.
  • If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not show up for your driver examination. You may cancel your appointment prior to 24 hours of the appointment without penalty and may rebook at a later time at no fee. Do not book an examination until you have been cleared by a physician or have self-monitored for 14 days.
