DMV Offices Close for Labor Day Holiday
Customers Encouraged to Conduct DMV Transactions Online
RICHMOND - All Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles customer service centers (CSC) will be closed Monday, September 3, 2012 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
Two DMV Select offices are open on Labor Day - the Oak Hall Select at 8171 Lankford Highway in Accomack County from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the Lovingston Select at 236 Cooperative Way in Arrington from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. DMV Selects process vehicle-related transactions including registration renewals, titles and license plates. Driver licenses and ID card services are not available at DMV Select offices. For a list of the 57 DMV Select office locations and hours, visit www.dmvNOW.com .
When DMV is closed or anytime, customers may sign up for a myDMV account and take care of their DMV business online. Customers can conduct 31 different secure transactions with a myDMV account and personal identification number (PIN) such as renewing driver licenses or ID cards, and they may obtain information specific to them, such as their driving record.
Also, by creating a myDMV account, customers may opt to receive electronic renewal notices for decals and driver licenses. Customers check a box indicating they want to receive decal renewal notices via email, phone or text message. More than one million Virginians have signed up for this service since the environmentally friendly option was launched a year ago.
"Signing up for an account with DMV is similar to signing up for an account with your utility provider, your bank, and even Facebook and Twitter," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "This streamlined service saves taxpayer money and is environmentally friendly. It allows Virginians to opt to receive their decal renewal notices in the method that is most convenient for them."
