DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Portsmouth
Driver's License and ID Card Transactions Available Outside DMV Select
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to offer supplemental services at the Portsmouth DMV Select location on Thursday, May 24. DMV 2 Go will be open for business from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. outside the DMV Select located in City Hall at 801 Crawford Street, Suite A.
The 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.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Portsmouth DMV Select operated by Commissioner of the Revenue Franklin D. Edmondson. The 57 DMV Selects throughout the state provide an alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. DMV Selects are in convenient locations where customers may otherwise have to drive long distances to get to a customer service center.
DMV Selects process a number of transactions including vehicle titles and registrations, license plates, and transcript requests. DMV Selects do not issue driver's licenses, learner permits or ID cards, and that's where DMV 2 Go comes in.
"Our mobile offices supplement the great work DMV Selects are already doing," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "During last visit to the Portsmouth DMV Select, more than 40 transactions were conducted, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option."
Customers are encouraged to research and bring the required documents to complete their transactions. To determine what documents are needed, use the interactive document guide at www.dmvNOW.com.
