DMV 2 Go Returns to Serve Veterans at Salem VA Medical Center
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, October 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Salem VA Medical Center located at 1970 Roanoke Boulevard. The mobile office will be parked in Lot S across from the Credit Union. A ribbon-cutting event celebrating regular DMV 2 Go service and the new Virginia veterans ID card will be held at 10 a.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 and allows veterans to receive discounts from retailers and restaurants.
"During our first two visits to the Salem VA Medical Center, we served more than 200 customers, more than 40 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.
