POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - The Bannock County DMV will be closed to the public next Monday through Thursday (November 23 to November 27) to process a large number of backlogged vendor titles, and mailed renewals.
Assesssor Sheri Davies said the office is facing extreme backlogs as a result of the Idaho Transportation Department's new GEM system. The system was implemented October 13, increassing the time per transaction of 5 to 20 minutes to as much as 1.5 to 2 hours. That, in turn, created long lines and wait times.
ITD has extended registration renewals that expired between September 30 and December 31, 2020 until January 31, 2021.
