DMV Reminds Customers of Alternative Services

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) wants customers to avoid making an unnecessary trip to a field office to renew their vehicle registration when this simple transaction can be completed online, by mail, at a DMV Now Self-Service Terminal or at partner organizations.

Customers can always skip the line by using the DMV Now Self-Service Terminal, which prints a new registration card and license plate tag on the spot. These convenient kiosks are available in 60 field offices and 40 retail locations.

AAA offices offer its members registration renewal services, and other Registration Service Business Partners can also process vehicle registration renewals and other DMV-related transactions for a fee.

The DMV also offers many online services at www.dmv.ca.gov, which can save a trip to a DMV field office. A few of the convenient options include renewing a driver license and ID card, paying a registration suspension fee, completing a notice of transfer and release of liability, order personalized license plates and request a driver record.
