DPS to open Drivers License office in Southwest Courthouse

The Southwest Courthouse in Flower Mound.

The Texas Department of Public Safety will open a new Drivers License office in west Flower Mound next week.

The new office will open in the Southwest Courthouse, 6200 Canyon Falls Drive, on Sept. 4, according to a news release from the office of Precinct 4 Commissioner Andy Eads. The courthouse opened last year near Hwy 377 and FM 1171, but the DPS was not ready to open then, said Shannon Joski, chief administrator for Eads’ office.

The Drivers License office “has been in the works for years,” Joski said, and the courthouse was built with designated space specifically for it. The Drivers License office will be a smaller office, certainly not a mega-center, but it will be full-service and it serves two main purposes, Joski said.

“It was always meant to help alleviate the congestion of other offices around the area,” Joski said, “and it is also part of an effort to bring services out from the county seat into the community. It will allow people to do more county or government business in one place instead of driving around from office to office.”

Before this office opens, the closest Drivers License offices to southern Denton County have been the ones in east Denton and in Lewisville. Click here for information about how to minimize your wait at any state Drivers License office.
