DMV 2 Go Returns to Serve Veterans at Hampton VA Medical Center
Mobile Office Provides All DMV Services Including New Veterans ID Card
RICHMOND - DMV's mobile customer service center called DMV 2 Go will provide all DMV services to veterans, their families, and other customers on Monday, August 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Hampton VA Medical Center located at 100 Emancipation Drive. The mobile office will be parked in the back lot near Building 83. A ribbon-cutting event celebrating regular DMV 2 Go service and the new Virginia veterans ID card will be held at 2:30 p.m. A number of dignitaries are expected to attend.
DMV 2 Go is a handicapped-accessible full service office that provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver's licenses, adult and child ID cards, and Virginia's new veterans ID card. Road and knowledge tests are available, and applicants may get their pictures taken and complete vision screenings. Customers can order disabled parking placards or plates, and get vehicle titles, license plates and decals.
DMV staff will be prepared to assist with services specific to veterans including applying for the new veterans ID card. The veterans ID card serves as proof of veteran status to receive discounts from retailers and restaurants.
"During our first visit to the Hampton VA Medical Center, we conducted about 75 transactions, more than 30 of which were customers applying for the new veterans ID card," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "We are excited to launch regular service at this location and help support Governor Bob McDonnell's goal of making Virginia an even more veteran-friendly state."
Staff will also be accepting and processing certificates of disability, which allow veterans to apply for a registration fee exemption. DMV also offers more than 30 military-themed license plates.
