BRISTOL, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles will close its Bristol office at the end of the year.

DMV spokeswoman Brandy Brubaker tells local media outlets that the DMV is consolidating customer service centers in Washington County to serve area customers in a more cost-efficient manner.

She says the closure at the end of business on Dec. 31 will save the DMV approximately $50,000 a year in rent in addition to other expenses.

Currently, Bristol’s staff includes six full-time employees and one part-time employee. With the exception of one employee who has chosen to retire, all staff members will be reassigned to nearby offices in Abingdon, Gate City and Lebanon.

Brubaker says the addition of staff from Bristol, will allow the DMV to open more service windows at the Abingdon office.
