WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) – The commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Motor Vehicles says there will be new hours of operation at the 10 full-service branches and some services will be regionalized. The changes will take place whether or not union members ratify a labor savings agreement.

Melody Currey announced Wednesday that three days a week – Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays – the branches will be open from 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The branches will be open from 9:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays and from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays. They will continue to remain closed on Mondays.

Currey said certain services, including eye tests, road tests for non-commercial licenses, and vehicle identification number verifications will only be offered in the Bridgeport, Waterbury, Wethersfield and Willimantic DMV offices.

    Does it make sense to have people who need an eye test made to travel further? Also they want us to drive less to use less fuel.
