DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Chesapeake
Driver Transactions and Veterans ID Cards Available Outside DMV Select
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to Chesapeake offering supplemental services at the DMV Select location. On Wednesday, October 31 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business outside the Chesapeake DMV Select located inside City Hall at 306 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, 23322. A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting the official launch of bi-monthly service in Chesapeake will be held at 10 a.m. Congressman Randy Forbes, a number of legislators and local leaders are slated to attend.
The handicapped-accessible full service mobile office provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver''''s licenses and ID cards. Road and knowledge tests are available, and applicants may get their pictures taken and complete vision screenings. Veterans can also apply for Virginia’s new veterans ID card.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Chesapeake DMV Select operated by Ray Conner, Commissioner of the Revenue. The 57 DMV Selects throughout the state provide an alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. DMV Selects process a number of transactions including vehicle titles and registrations, license plates, and transcript requests. DMV Selects do not issue driver’s licenses, learner permits or ID cards, and that’s where DMV 2 Go comes in.
"Our mobile offices supplement the great work DMV Selects are already doing, and we are excited to continue this partnership into next year," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Previous visits to Chesapeake have been busy, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option."
