Texas Department of Public Safety driver’s licenses offices will begin a phased reopening plan starting Tuesday requiring appointments for all services.

Nacogdoches residents, however, won’t be able to go to the local office until June 3.

"This phased opening of our driver license offices and the launch of DPS' online appointment system prioritizes the health and safety of our communities and ensures Texans have access to the services they need at their local driver license offices," Gov. Greg Abbott said in a press release. "I thank DPS for developing this safe and strategic plan to open their offices and for launching a new appointment system to streamline our driver license services."

Appointments must be made through https://www.dps.texas.gov/DriverLicense and can be scheduled up to six months in advance.

The DPS plan is being conducted in four phases with Northwest and West Texas offices opening Tuesday. Nacogdoches is in the Southeast Texas Region, which will not open until June 3. Anyone who needs to obtain a driver’s license, learner permit or ID card or schedule a driving test can being scheduling appointments online on May 29 at 1 p.m.
