RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will process child ID cards and all other DMV transactions at the Salem Fair in the evening on Tuesday, July 10 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The mobile office will be open for business in the parking lot of the Salem Civic Center located at 1000 Roanoke Boulevard to serve customers as they come in and out of the fair.

ID cards are available for children under age 15. In addition to serving as an identity document, the child's photograph is stored in DMV's database. "If the child becomes missing, DMV can retrieve the image and transmit it to law enforcement anywhere in the United States immediately. No other ID card can provide this service," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "We are excited to partner with the Salem Fair to provide this opportunity for families at a time and place convenient to them."

Parents or guardians may apply for ID cards for their children for $10 at this event or at any DMV customer service center. Customers at the event are also welcome to conduct any other DMV business inside DMV 2 Go.
