Henry County Probate Judge Jo Ann Smith is opening a satellite office in Headland.
The new facility will be located inside the new Headland National Bank at the corner of Highway 431 North and County Road 22.
People will still have to go to Abbeville to get driver licenses, but they can pick up and re-new vehicle license plates and buy licenses for boating fishing and hunting at the satellite office.
Workers were busy installing new computers in the office Tuesday morning.
Smith made the satellite office a priority during last year's election campaign.
She says the facility will help save time and money.
"We’ll be open during lunch so they can come in during their lunch hour. I also think some of the people that live in the north end of the county but work down in this area...they'll probably take advantage of stopping here," said Smith.
The new satellite office will be open each Thursday from 9 am until 4:30 pm, but Smith says the hours of operation can be expanded if necessary.
