Parkersburg will have a permanent Division of Motor Vehicles regional office by late summer.
Driver's license renewals, vehicle titling and other services are currently offered at a temporary site in the Park Shopping Center.
The DMV said Thursday that it expects to award a construction contract for the new permanent office in March.
The 9,000-square-foot building will be constructed on property owned by the Division of Highways. The project includes construction of a motorcycle testing course.
