New Driver’s License Center in Norristown

There was a grand opening on Friday at the new PennDOT Driver’s License Center in Norristown.

It’s in the former Logan Square Shopping Center at the corner of Johnson Highway and Markley Street and is almost twice the size of the old one just up the road in East Norriton. The new facility puts the emphasis on customer service and patrons can book their place in line with their mobile phone as well as provide feedback on their experience in real time. Governor Tom Wolf was there for the grand opening and said the center is an example of government that works.

“What this center is, is a reflection of what we actually do and what we are trying to do in government. We want to make it more efficient, we want to make it more customer-friendly, this is what we’re talking about.”

County Commissioner Vice Chair Dr. Val Arkoosh said the new PennDOT facility is part of the renaissance underway in Norristown.

“From the County campus plan to the Lafayette Street extension to new businesses and restaurants opening up, there are great things happening right here in Norristown and this new center is just more evidence of that.

It cost about $500,000 to convert the old bank space into the PennDOT Driver’s License Center.
