In an effort to conserve energy amid a lingering heat wave, DMV offices across California will close at 3 p.m. from Monday through Wednesday this week.

The decision to close early was made to save energy and “protect the health and safety of customers and employees from high heat impacts,” officials with the agency said.

The early closures run from Aug. 17-19.

DMV offices will accommodate customers -- with and without appointments -- until 2:30 p.m. on the specified days.

Customers who have appointments on the specified days between 2:30 p.m.-5 p.m. will be contacted and have their appointments rescheduled.

DMV officials said customers can visit the agency’s website for many services.

Officials added: “The DMV is also using shade structures where available, offering mobile tickets so customers can wait in an air-conditioned car or other building and return when it is their turn, and making water available to customers and employees.
