Gov. Phil Scott says the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles is working on a plan to reopen, and that reopening should happen soon.

The DMV has 11 offices in Vermont. They closed in late March when the governor issued his stay-at-home order.

We reached out to the DMV for three weeks trying to find out when they would resume services, but they did not provide any details about a timeline.

During his news conference Wednesday, the governor said there is controversy within the DMV about how to reopen. He says not everyone is on the same page.

*Editor's note: In the original version of this story, we reported that no one from the DMV got back to us about when they would resume services. That's not true. They did but they didn't give us any answers about a timeline.
