A Message from Director Robinson

DC DMV Director Gabriel Robinson

Greetings DC! October is Pedestrian Safety Month. As days are becoming shorter with less daylight, it's important that drivers take extra caution while driving, particularly in areas with high pedestrian traffic.

In this month's newsletter, we highlight that effective October 1, 2023, annual registration fees changed for battery electric passenger vehicles. Please refer to the chart provided in the article for more details on the specific fees.

Please read on to learn more about pedestrian safety tips in our Vision Zero section. By following the basics of pedestrian safety, we can all make the District a safer place to live and work.

Finally, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we include a reminder in this month's edition that Breast Cancer Awareness tags are available at all DC DMV Service Centers.

As a reminder, please join me for DC DMV's Live Chat the first Thursday of each month. I'll be online for a full hour to respond in real-time to any of your DC DMV-related questions. Our next online live chat is scheduled for Thursday, November 2 at 12 p.m.

Thank you for reading this edition of our newsletter. Enjoy and stay safe!
