Department of Motor Vehicles

The mission of the Virginia Department of Vehicle (DMV) is to promote security, safety and service through the administration of motor vehicle and tax-related laws.

DMV’s responsibilities include vehicle titling and registration, driver licensing and maintenance of driver and vehicle records. The agency also collects Virginia’s fuel tax and car rental tax, monitors the state’s trucking industry and serves as Virginia’s Highway Safety Office.

DMV Selects are a service alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. Local governments and private entities contract with DMV to provide secure, select DMV transactions at convenient locations. DMV Selects can process vehicle titling and registration transactions; however, DMV Selects do not issue Driver’s Licenses, Learners Permits or Identification Cards.

  • Vehicle Titles and Registrations
    Original (with or without liens), substitute and replacement titles and title maintenance (to change information on title records, adding/removing of names). Original registrations, renewals (including fleets), transfers, re-issues, and plate surrenders.
  • License Plates
    Specialized and personalized plate orders, including the issuance of motorcycle, permanent trailer, truck, taxicab and local government use plates.
  • Permits and Placards
    Trip permits and overload permits. Original issue of handicapped parking placards.
  • Transcript Requests
    Driver transcripts and vehicle transcripts (helpful for those who apply for job where a driver’s transcript is needed initially, submitted periodically or checked by their employer).
  • Return Checks
    Full payment of return check fees.
  • Voter Registration Applications
