The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is temporarily reducing license counter hours at its regional office located at 3883 Ruffin Road in San Diego.

This location will only be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

CDFW regrets this temporary inconvenience and wants to ensure the public is aware of the closure so they can make plans to visit this office when it is open.

“Even with reduced hours, our facility will offer the same services, including responses to public inquiries and the ability to purchase licenses and tags,” said CDFW South Coast Regional Manager Ed Pert.

The reduced hours are a result of administrative staff vacancies. There is no confirmed date when regular weekly hours will be restored, but CDFW is working diligently to re-open the license counter full-time as quickly as possible.

Customers may also make purchases online at or from local license agents. A database of local agents is available on the CDFW website.

The new schedule will go into effect on Tuesday, April 28.
