Following driver's license issues, Kootenai County extends office hours

Posted: Updated:
KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho -

Due to the recent issues plaguing Driver’s Licensing Offices statewide, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office has expanded the Driver’s Licensing Office hours of operation. Both the Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls offices will now be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. effective Monday, September 17, 2018.

In addition to the expanded hours, there will be one line dedicated to “Renewals only” to help speed the process. This line is for those who already have a valid Idaho driver’s license that needs to be renewed. Individuals licensed in another state, who are wanting to obtain an Idaho driver’s license, will be processed in the normal manner.

Please be advised transaction times are continuing to take approximately 35-40 minutes to process, where before they could be completed in about 12 minutes. This slowdown is a continuation of the statewide problems associated with the required use of ITD’s system software.

The sheriff's office encourages people to utilize the new QLess scheduling program either on the kiosk located in the Driver’s License offices, or by using a free app on their smart phone. This will allow customers the ability to schedule appointments or to arrive in person and sign up for a place in line.
