As of noon today, Friday, October 21, 2016, DC DMV cannot process licensing and vehicle transactions using a credit card.  Only cash, checks and money orders can be accepted.  This issue is due to today’s cyberattack which is impacting the East Coast.  Adjudication Services’ ticket payments have not been affected.  We will update with additional information as it becomes available.
