"Thirty-one transactions are now available on DMV's website," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Because of our large array of alternative service offerings, more customers than ever are using a more convenient method to conduct their DMV business rather than visiting an office, and many of those are using the web."

To conduct business online, customers are encouraged to sign up for a myDMV account at After instantly obtaining a personal identification number (PIN), a variety of transactions are available online including vehicle registration, driver's license and ID card renewals; obtaining driving records and purchasing special license plates. Customers with a myDMV account may opt to receive vehicle registration renewal reminders via email, text or phone message instead of receiving notices through the U.S. mail.

Before signing up for a myDMV account, customers may test drive DMV's website by visiting the online virtual customer service center. The interactive feature allows customers to get acquainted with doing DMV business online by taking a virtual tour with a fictional PIN and customer information.
