“Skip the Trip” to the District DMV

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

(WASHINGTON, DC) – With more than 40 services available online and through the mail, the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) is reminding customers of their option to “Skip the Trip” to DC DMV Service Centers.

“Visit us on Your Time,” is the theme of the newly revitalized campaign encouraging the public to visit and learn more about the agency’s online and mail services. “Approximately 600 people visit each DMV service center daily, and many of them can use their computers, laptops or tablets for their transactions,” said DC DMV Director Lucinda Babers. “Ideally, only customers who need services that require an in-person visit are the ones at the Service Centers.” Also, for customers who may not have computers in their home, they can use the computers at any District Public Library to access DMV’s website securely, or send their request through the mail.

DC DMV’s website is available daily from 6am – 11:59pm, making it accessible to customers outside of DMV’s regular hours of operation. The Service Centers are open Tuesday – Saturday from 8:15am-4pm.

 In addition to visiting DMV’s website, customers may also obtain information by contacting the agency via Twitter and Facebook, as well as through the Citywide Call Center by dialing 311.
