DMV Will No Longer Offer Several Services in Offices


DMV offices will stop offering some services as the department moves to streamline online resources.

Here’s what you need to know: Starting Monday, the DMV will only process simple vehicle registration renewals that are not past due, DL renewals that do not require in-office visits, registration or DL record copy requests, and DL replacement requests through its online portal.

DMV Director Steve Gordon announced that the department is transitioning from its notorious ‘long DMV line’ reputation to becoming a ‘mobile-first operation.’ This shift is projected to reduce office visits by 200,000 customers each month, totaling 2.4 million fewer trips annually.

If you don’t like the idea of completing these and 90% of the DMV’s other services online, you can still do it by mail, over the phone, or at DMV Kiosks.

The DMV does remind you you that although many services are online, you will still need to visit your DMV office to complete your REAL ID application before the May 7th deadline next year.
