DMV 2 Go to Serve Marine Corps Base Quantico Members, Families
New Mobile Office Provides All DMV Services
RICHMOND - DMV 2 Go, DMV's newest customer service center, will provide all DMV services to military members and their families on December 12, 2011 at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Prince William County.
The handicapped-accessible full service office provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver's licenses and ID cards -- road and knowledge tests are available, and applicants may get their pictures taken. Customers can order disabled parking placards or plates, and get vehicle titles, license plates and decals. If Virginians have recently moved, they can stop in to update their address on their DMV record, and also update their voter registration address and organ donor status. Customers can search for other state services through a wireless Virginia Internet portal.
"DMV staff will be prepared to assist with services specific to military personnel," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "For example, active duty military members may have questions about proving Virginia residency, titling vehicles in Virginia vs. their home state, or extending the validity of their driver's licenses or vehicle registrations while stationed outside Virginia." Also, DMV offers more than 30 military-themed special plates.
At no cost, DMV acquired a 1990 recreational vehicle with an odometer reading of 11,000 miles from another state agency that no longer used the unit. "DMV has recycled this vehicle into a mobile DMV office, giving it a new life of service for Virginia's citizens," Holcomb said.
DMV will host a ribbon-cutting event in front of the DMV 2 Go mobile office at 11: 00 a.m. to celebrate this new partnership. A number of state legislators are scheduled to attend and deliver remarks.
