Customers can now know the wait at the Blaine County Department of Motor Vehicles before they go, thanks to real-time online monitoring.

     The Assessor’s Office rolled out the new tool on its website this week. There, it lists the number of people waiting and the estimated wait time.

     “DMV customers can use this information to help plan their visits,” County Assessor Jim Williams told the Idaho Mountain Express. “Instead of showing up and finding a line, they can go to our website and view the current wait times and see how many people are currently ahead of them.”

     To see it, go to and click on the clock at the top of the page.
