DMV 2 Go Returns to Virginia Beach to Serve Veterans and the Community
DMV Office on Wheels to Visit Veterans Center at Pembroke Office Park
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to Virginia Beach offering all DMV services outside the Department of Veterans Services (DVS) Virginia Beach Field Office. On Wednesday, September 4 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business in the parking lot of the Pembroke 2 office building at 287 Independence Boulevard in Virginia Beach. A ribbon-cutting ceremony highlighting continued 2013 quarterly service at the DVS Virginia Beach Field Office will be held at 2 p.m. Legislators and local leaders are invited to attend.
The full service 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, a joint effort of DVS and DMV that allows veterans to prove their veteran status in order to receive discounts from businesses.
"Our mobile offices bring DMV services to veterans, military members and all other citizens in every corner of the Commonwealth at a time and place that are convenient to them," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "The mobile office staff has completed nearly 300 transactions in four previous visits to the DVS Virginia Beach Field Office, so we know customers in this area are enjoying this service option."
DMV 2 Go will be open for veterans and the general public alike. Customers are encouraged to research and bring the required documents to complete their transactions. To determine what documents are needed, use the interactive document guide at www.dmvNOW.com.
