RICHMOND - In plenty of time for the fall hunting season, dozens of new convenient outlets across Virginia will soon begin providing hunting and fishing licenses.

Beginning September 10, the partnership between the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) that began last January expanded to include a majority of Virginia''s 57 DMV Select offices. Virginians will be able to purchase hunting and fishing licenses, and submit applications for boat titles and registrations, at many DMV Select locations. Since these services became available at all full-service DMV customer service centers in January, DMV has processed approximately 8,000 DGIF-related transactions.

DMV and DGIF formed the partnership so Virginians could purchase their hunting and fishing-related products in one trip to either DGIF or DMV. Previously, boat-owners had to go to DGIF to register their boats and to DMV to register their boat trailers. Also, hunting and fishing licenses were not available at DMV. "Now, it''s one-stop shopping," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Customers can conduct a variety of transactions through either agency."

The participating DMV Select offices will join the 74 local DMV customer service centers, five mobile offices and more than 700 DGIF retailers across the state that already sell hunting and fishing licenses. "With all these convenient service outlets, Virginians won''t have to travel far to obtain needed state services," said DGIF Executive Director Bob Duncan.

DMV Selects are local governments and private entities that contract with DMV to conduct vehicle-related transactions. Each DMV Select has online access to DMV allowing the partner to update customer records immediately. Customers can conduct many routine motor vehicle-related services at DMV Selects including vehicle decal renewals, vehicle titles and license plate orders. However, DMV Selects do not issue driver''s licenses, learner''s permits or identification cards. Visit for a list of participating DMV Select locations and hours.
