District DMV Ticket Payment System is Down Due to a Power Issue

Tuesday, August 30, 2016


(WASHINGTON, DC) – Due to a power outage in its vendor’s New York office, the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles’ (DC DMV) ticket payment system is down.

DC DMV is unable to process ticket payments, research tickets, or access tickets. The agency is unable to adjudicate any tickets that have been submitted by mail or online.  However, previously scheduled hearings and in-person hearings, for which the customer has a hard copy of the ticket(s) and evidence, will be conducted, and the hearing decision will be entered into the system later.

Currently, DC DMV does not have an estimated time when the system will be back up and running, but will provide service updates. We apologize for the inconvenience.
