Warm Springs DMV Select Celebrates 65 Years of Service
Event to Celebrate Anniversary and DMV 2 Go Service
RICHMOND - For 65 years, Bath County residents have been able to conduct some of their DMV business by simply walking into the local Treasurer's Office. The Warm Springs DMV Select will celebrate 65 years of service on Thursday, July 11 at 11 a.m. at the Select office located in the Bath County Courthouse at 65 Courthouse Hill Road. The DMV mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will also be on site to offer supplemental services. A number of dignitaries are slated to attend.
The Warm Springs Select is the oldest of DMV's 57 Select offices. It opened as a DMV license agent in 1948 by former Bath County Treasurer William Jenkins. Mary Susan Blankenship ran the office as Treasurer for 43 years. It is currently operated by Treasurer Pamela Webb.
DMV Selects process a number of transactions including vehicle titles and registrations, license plates, and transcript requests, but DMV Selects do not issue driver's licenses, learner's permits or ID cards. That is where DMV 2 Go comes in.
DMV 2 Go will be open for business from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 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.
"We are excited to celebrate this milestone at the Warm Springs DMV Select," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "We appreciate our partnership with Bath County for offering these convenient alternatives to local DMV customers for so many years."
