The new Gallatin Motor Vehicle and Drivers License Office opened much sooner than anticipated, according to Jessica Adkins, Marketing and Development Director at Access II.
The licensing office opened on March 21 at the Access II Independent Living Center building, located at 101 Industrial Parkway, Gallatin. Access II was recently awarded the contract for a license office, and the staff worked to get all of the details arranged with the Department of Revenue.
“We’re happy to announce that we were able to get the new technology and the security system in place, and the details worked out quicker than expected,” said Ms. Adkins. “We’re now ready for the public to come in.” Kim Slaughter of Bethany will be the office manager. The entrance to the licensing office is in the front of the building, through the main entrance of Access II. Office hours are Monday: 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Closed from 1-1:30 for lunch each day. Phone is 660-663-7917. A drop off service is also offered: drop it by, pick it up later.
Access II is a non-profit company. Any excess revenue from the licensing offi ce will be directly funneled back into the programs and services currently provided to people with disabilities in the community. Those services include in-home and consumer directed services, employment services, transportation, durable medical equipment, independent living skills training, transition services, and much more.
