DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Caroline County
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 Caroline offering supplemental services at the DMV Select location. On Tuesday, November 13 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business outside the Caroline DMV Select located at 212 North Main Street, Bowling Green, 22420. A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting the official launch of bi-monthly service in Caroline County will be held at 10 a.m. A number of legislators and local leaders are slated to attend.
The 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 Caroline DMV Select operated by Sharon Carter, Commissioner of the Revenue, and Beth Curran, Treasurer. The 57 DMV Selects throughout the state provide an alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. DMV Selects are in convenient locations where customers may otherwise have to drive long distances to get to a customer service center. From Caroline, the closest full-service DMV offices are in Fredericksburg, North Henrico or Tappahannock, all of which are more than a 30 minute drive for many residents.
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’s 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 Caroline County have been busy, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option."
Starting in January, DMV 2 Go will provide driver services in Caroline County bi-monthly at alternate locations in order to provide several options for customers. On January 15, May 13, and September 16, DMV 2 Go will be open for business at the Ladysmith Fire Department located at 17401 Jefferson Davis Highway, Ruther Glen, 22501. March 18, July 15, and November 13, DMV 2 Go will be at the Caroline DMV Select.
