Drivers License

Drivers License

January 5, 2021:
Starting on Monday January 11, 2021 the Clearwater County Driver’s License Office will be changing hours of operation and how we operate. The new hours will be Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. These hours will align with the support hours at the Idaho Transportation Department which owns the driver’s license software. This problem with this new software continue to require us to call them regularly when it is not functioning properly. These issues have caused some of the recent lines at the driver’s license office.
The other change that we will make is requiring an appointment for services. Most of our neighboring Counties have been doing this and we are now seeing lines form with residents from those Counties. We will give appointment preference to Clearwater County residents. Appointment times will be in 15-minute increments and should make it more convenient for both staff and residents that need driver’s license, concealed weapon, or sex offender services. Please be sure to arrive at your appointment time promptly. Appointments can be made by calling 208-476-8970 If you need a Star Card, please check the Idaho Transportation Departments web page for required documents and additional information.
Thank you, Chris Goetz, Sheriff
