In response to high customer demand, PennDOT is adding hours to the driver’s license center in Berks County.

The PennDOT Driver License Center at the Shillington Shopping Center, 530 East Lancaster Avenue (Route 222) , Suite 5, in Shillington, will add an additional day for photo services on Mondays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. beginning this Monday, Feb. 5.

Because of an increase in customers, expanding photo center operating hours to include Mondays will improve the customer experience and increase the number of customers that can be served on the additional day, according to PennDOT.

Additionally, PennDOT has redirected additional staff to the Reading location and has created an additional driver licensing processing station, which will reduce customer wait times.

Customers may also obtain a variety of driver and vehicle products and services online through PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website, www.dmv.pa.gov.

Driver and vehicle online services are available 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week and include driver’s license, photo ID and vehicle registration renewals; driver-history services; changes of address; driver license and vehicle registration restoration letters; ability to pay driver license or vehicle insurance restoration fee; driver license and photo ID duplicates; and driver exam scheduling. There are no additional fees for using online services.
