CLAIBORNE PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — The Homer Office of Motor Vehicles branch is the latest in northwest Louisiana to switch to appointment-only after getting an “overwhelming amount of positive feedback” once they started doing it due to the coronavirus pandemic.

- Mail – OMV Mail Center, P.O. Box 64886, Baton Rouge, LA 70896
