The DMV has taken many steps to offer more digital services. Most DMV tasks do not require an office visit. The DMV encourages all customers to use its online services and other service channels to complete transactions, including eligible driver’s license and vehicle registration renewals. Customers can also use the Service Advisor on the DMV website to complete DMV tasks.
