DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Falls Church
Event to Celebrate Mobile Office Service and Seven-Year Anniversary
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to Falls Church on April 23.
DMV 2 Go provides supplemental services to the Falls Church DMV Select in the nearby Bowl America parking lot located at 140 S. Maple Avenue on the second Friday of every other month; however, on Tuesday, April 23 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for the first time right outside the Falls Church DMV Select in City Hall. The mobile office will be parked at 300 Park Avenue, Falls Church, 22046.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting continued 2013 bi-monthly service in Falls Church will be held at 11 a.m. The event will also include a flag presentation ceremony in honor of the Falls Church DMV Selects seven-year anniversary. A number of legislators and local leaders are slated to attend.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Falls Church DMV Select operated by Tom Clinton, 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.
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.
"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. "Visits to Falls Church are busy, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option." During a visit in March, DMV 2 Go served 130 customers. After the April 23 visit, the mobile office will return to its regular Falls Church location at Bowl America on Friday, May 10, 2013.
