Residents can get help with driver's license services from the third and final branch of the Alachua County Tax Collector's Office starting Monday.
The office's Southwest Gainesville Branch is in Butler Plaza behind Wal-Mart. Its address is 3207 SW 35th Blvd.
Alachua County Tax Collector Von Fraser has taken over the handling of driver's license services following the March closure of the state-run office that used to manage those local transactions.
The tax collector now provides these services at its three Gainesville offices: the southwest branch, the downtown branch at 12 SE 1st St. and the northwest branch at 5801 NW 34th Blvd., according to a news release.
The downtown and southwest branches offer basic driver's license services, while the northwest one is the place to go if you need an advanced transaction.
A grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held May 1 at the Northwest Gainesville Branch.
