BEDFORD – Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr., (R-35), Representative Carl Walker Metzgar (R-69), and Representative Jesse Topper (R-78) are pleased the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced the reopening of the Bedford Driver License Center (DLC) on Friday, November 19, 2021.
The Bedford DLC was closed as a result of extensive flooding due to remnants of Hurricane Ida. This is the second time the facility was closed in the last year, with the prior time occurring during the Wolf Administration’s COVID-19 shutdowns.
“I am pleased that the collaboration between myself and Reps. Topper and Metzgar resulted in the reopening of this vital center. Now, constituents will be able to access this facility and all of the driver license and identification services it offers,” said Senator Langerholc, chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee. “We will continue fighting for improved customer service at this facility, which has a poor record of being closed.”
“Having our constituents drive a lengthy period of time to address their identification need is government malpractice and has created an overwhelming burden for quite some time. I am pleased to see the Bedford DLC reopen in the coming days so residents who need help can get that within close proximity of their homes,” said Representative Metzgar.
“Resident have waited a long time for the reopening of our local drivers license center. I applaud the efforts by PennDOT and, like all residents, look forward to the convenience of once again having a center local to residents of Bedford County,” Representative Topper said.
