The state Department of Motor Vehicles will extend the hours of its Long Beach office as part of a pilot program to make the office more convenient for motorists.
Starting April 3, the office at 2627 Pacific Ave. will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays except on Thursday, when it will be open until 6:30 p.m.
The office is one of only a few in the state participating in the program. Other offices in Long Beach and the Southeast will maintain their normal hours, a DMV spokesman said.
"With the extended hours program, we can be more responsive to our customers," DMV Director Del Pierce said in a prepared statement.
