DMV Mobile Office Returns to Powhatan County
All DMV Transactions Available Outside the Powhatan Farm Bureau
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will be in Powhatan County Tuesday, October 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. DMV 2 Go will be parked outside the Powhatan County Farm Bureau located at 3833 Old Buckingham Road.
DMV will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of DMV 2 Go at 10 a.m. to celebrate the mobile office’s new service for Powhatan citizens. A number of legislators and local dignitaries are scheduled to attend.
The handicapped-accessible full service mobile office provides all DMV transactions including driver’s licenses, license plates and decals, ID cards, and Virginia’s new veterans ID card. In addition, if Virginians have recently moved, they can update their addresses on their DMV record and update voter registration and organ donor status. Thanks to a partnership with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF), DMV customers can buy hunting and fishing licenses and get temporary boat registrations.
DMV 2 Go is equipped with the latest wireless technology to accomplish the needed connection to DMV’s computer systems. The wireless capability allows the units to provide secure service at virtually any location.
"Our goal is to bring services to our customers at a time and place convenient for them," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Visiting Powhatan is the perfect opportunity for customers to conduct their DMV business quickly and efficiently."
Customers are encouraged to research and bring the required documents to complete their transactions. To determine what documents are needed, use the interactive document guide at www.dmvNOW.com.
