Thanks to a new partnership with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF), DMV customers can now buy fishing and hunting licenses and temporary boat registrations at any DMV customer service center, including the mobile offices. "We are always looking for better ways to make government services even more accessible to customers," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "With so many avid fishermen attending the Mid-Atlantic Saltwater Fishing Expo, we are bringing DMV to them making it convenient to purchase fishing licenses on the spot."
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 mobile office to provide secure service at virtually any location. The full service mobile office provides all DMV transactions so visitors to the expo can conduct any DMV-related business.
