Driver's License Office Opens In Bay St. Louis

Getting a driver's license just got a little easier in Hancock County. Monday morning, the Mississippi Highway Patrol's Driver Services Division opened a new driver's license station in Bay Saint Louis.

Governor Haley Barbour said opening the facility indicates continued progress in the restoration of important public services that were affected by Hurricane Katrina.

"By working together, we are able to offer the public this valuable service. This facility marks continued improvement of the quality of life in the hardest hit areas of our coastal region," Governor Barbour said.

"A combined effort of legislative, city and county leaders culminated with the opening of this new station where we can better serve residents of Hancock County," said Highway Patrol Chief Colonel Michael Berthay.

The new full-service office is located at 3016 Longfellow Road, and will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Driver's license and firearm permits will be processed at the new station.
