DMV Mobile Office Launches Monthly Service in Floyd County
DMV 2 Go to Serve Customers Outside the County Courthouse
RICHMOND - DMV's Roanoke-based mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, is launching a monthly partnership to serve customers in Floyd County. Starting in January, DMV 2 Go will be open for business at the Floyd County Courthouse on the first Wednesday of each month.
DMV 2 Go will serve customers on January 4, February 1, March 7, April 4, May 2 and June 6 at the Courthouse located at 100 East Main Street, Floyd, VA, 24091 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
The handicapped-accessible full service mobile office provides all DMV transactions including driver's licenses and ID cards, disabled parking placards, vehicle titles, license plates and decals. In addition, if Virginians have recently moved, they can stop in to update their addresses on their DMV record and also update voter registration and organ donor status. Customers can search for other state services through a wireless Virginia Internet portal.
DMV 2 Go is equipped with the latest wireless technology to accomplish the needed connection to DMV's computer systems. The wireless capability allows the units to provide secure service at virtually any location.
"Our goal at DMV is that no customer has to drive more than 30 minutes to receive DMV services, and DMV 2 Go helps us meet that goal," says DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Right now, the closest full-service customer service center is in Christiansburg and about a 45 minute drive for most Floyd County residents. With DMV 2 Go, we are bringing a full-service DMV to a location convenient to them." DMV 2 Go served customers outside the Floyd County courthouse in September and November with great success. DMV staff served more than 40 customers during visit indicating a need for this service on a monthly basis.
