DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Hanover County
Event to Celebrate Mobile Office Service and Five-Year Anniversary
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to Hanover offering supplemental services at the DMV Select location. On Wednesday, April 10 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business outside the Hanover DMV Select in the Courthouse Complex located at 7497 County Complex Road, Hanover, 23069. A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting continued 2013 bi-monthly service at the Hanover DMV Select will be held at 10 a.m. The event will also include a flag presentation ceremony in honor of the Hanover DMV Select's five-year anniversary. 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 veterans ID card.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Hanover DMV Select operated by Scott Harris, Commissioner of the Revenue, and Scott Miller, 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 Hanover, the closest full-service DMV offices are in North Henrico or Richmond, both of which could be more than a 30 minute drive for some 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 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," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Previous visits to the Hanover DMV Select were busy, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option." During a visit in February, DMV 2 Go conducted more than 80 transactions.
DMV 2 Go has been providing supplemental services at the Hanover DMV Select on the second Wednesday of every other month since June 2012. The mobile office is scheduled to return to the Hanover Select on June 12, 2013.
