Individual Information Update
To improve customer service, DMV is collecting additional information both online and in-person. The language preference information consists of your primary language. In the future, this language information will be used to determine what additional languages we need to offer for our knowledge test, forms and notices. The motor voter information is being electronically sent to the Board of Elections and Ethics to ensure timely voter registration. The contact information, consisting of your phone number, fax number and e-mail address, will allow us to send you renewal notices and other information by e-mail instead of by regular mail. Unfortunately, due to the need to verify DC residency requirements, we are currently unable to allow you to update or change your mailing address online. We are working to offer this feature in the future.
You may update the following Individual Information:
- Language Preference
- Motor Voter Information, if you are a US citizen
- Contact Information (i.e., phone/fax number and e-mail address)
