BATON ROUGE – As part of its continued commitment to better serve the citizens of Louisiana, the Office of Motor Vehicles is pleased to announce the implementation of a “Senior Day” pilot program to be held at local OMV offices across the state.  The program is currently scheduled to take place one Saturday each month for the next six months aimed at providing senior citizens an expedited level of service by reducing and/or alleviating office wait times.

During the “Senior Day” program, strategically located OMV offices across the state will offer vehicle registration, driver’s license, identification card, handicap placard, and reinstatement services to those individuals 60 years of age and older.

The program is set to begin on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 8:00 am until 12:00pm at the following Louisiana OMV locations:

  • 5171 Northeast Road, Monroe, LA
  • 9310 Normandie Drive, Shreveport, LA
  • 1514 W. Lindberg, Slidell, LA
  • 100 Veterans Blvd, New Orleans, LA

Scheduled future “Senior Day” dates include:

  • December 6, 2014
  • January 10, 2015
  • February 7, 2015
  • March 7, 2015
  • April 11, 2015

During the implementation period, OMV staff will continuously review and monitor the success of the program to make adjustments as needed and determine future dates and additional locations.

“State Police and the Office of Motor Vehicles are committed to making the OMV experience of our longest serving clients as convenient as possible,” said Colonel Mike Edmonson, Deputy Secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections.  “We encourage our senior citizens to utilize these set days to get the customer service they deserve and make sure all their needs are met.”
