DMV 2 Go Returns to Supplement Services in Town of Remington
Event to Celebrate Mobile Office Service and 10-Year Anniversary
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to Remington offering supplemental services at the DMV Select location. On Tuesday, August 13 from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business outside the Remington DMV Select located in Town Hall at 203 East Main Street, Remington, 22734. A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting quarterly service at the Remington DMV Select will be held at 10 a.m. The event will also include a flag presentation ceremony in honor of the Remington DMV Select's 10-year anniversary. Legislators and local leaders are expected 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 veterans ID card.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Remington DMV Select operated by Sharon Lee, Town Administrator. 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 Remington, the closest full-service DMV offices are in Culpeper or Warrenton, both of which could be a 20 to 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 is 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 Remington DMV Select were busy, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option."
DMV 2 Go has been providing supplemental services at the Remington DMV Select since July 2012. Following this August visit, the mobile office is scheduled to return to the Remington Select on November 6, 2013.
