Surprise MVD office to reopen Aug. 10 after completed renovations

Interior capacity nearly tripled, facilities upgraded

PHOENIX – On Aug. 10, the Surprise Motor Vehicle Division office will reopen after completion of interior renovations, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The remodeling project has significantly increased the customer waiting area capacity, offering customers more efficient and comfortable service at the office.

The office can now hold a maximum of 188 customers, with customers able to wait inside to receive a number to be served. Previously, only 68 customers could be inside at one time, which left many who visited the Surprise office to wait outside before receiving a number.

“The remodeling of the Surprise office is one way MVD is committed to enhancing customer service,” said Motor Vehicle Division Operations Director Chuck Saillant. “Modernized offices and alternatives such as and Authorized Third Party businesses are some of the ways we demonstrate that commitment.”

Besides increasing the capacity of the customer waiting area, the project upgraded the air conditioning system, upgraded the restrooms and enhanced the look of the customer waiting area.
