Department of Revenue News Release
August 30, 2022The Department of Revenue Working to Open Two Motor Vehicle and Driver License Offices in Lincoln County
The Missouri Department of Revenue is announcing that a Request for Proposal (RFP) has been posted for bid for a license office in Elsberry in North Lincoln County. There was previously an office located in Elsberry. The bid opportunity closed on Aug. 29, 2022. Information regarding the bid can be found on the State of Missouri Bid Board at https://missouribuys.mo.gov/bidboard.
After partnering with Sen. Jeanie Riddle of District 10, the Department is also working to reopen a temporary license office in Troy, Mo., in early October. The Department previously had a temporary office in that location, but closed it in May 2022 due to a staffing shortage.
“Senator Riddle has been very helpful in articulating how important a local license office is to the residents of Troy, and Governor Parson asked the Department to do whatever we could to reopen this office,” said Director of Revenue Wayne Wallingford. “Thanks to Senator Riddle and the Governor, the residents of Troy will soon have convenient access to motor vehicle and driver license services.”
The Department is actively making arrangements to reopen the temporary office to serve customers in the Troy area and is actively seeking applicants to fill positions. Interested candidates may apply through Mo Careers.
The temporary office will serve Troy residents until the Department is able to pursue opening a permanent Troy license office once pending litigation related to the previous office is finalized. Until the temporary office is open in early October, the Department encourages customers to visit one of the following nearby locations to receive assistance with their motor vehicle and driver licensing needs:
- Bowling Green – 204 S Business Hwy 61, Bowling Green, MO 63334
