Stay Home, Stay Safe, Visit the DMV Online
December 10, 2020
As Californians continue to deal with the challenges arising from the coronavirus pandemic, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) remains committed to the health and safety of its customers and employees across the state. For your own protection, the DMV urges Californians to avoid visiting DMV offices unless absolutely necessary for the duration of the pandemic.
At this time, the DMV encourages Californians to complete their DMV tasks through its new website from the safety of home, or through other service channels such as DMV NOW kiosks conveniently located in grocery stores around the state.
The vast majority of DMV tasks, such as vehicle registration renewals and driver’s license renewals, can now be completed without a trip to a DMV office. Many online services are self-serve, meaning you can complete them on your own from start to finish, while other services are “assisted,” meaning they are completed with the help of a DMV representative – but without a visit to an office. Customers can use the Service Advisor on the DMV website to learn their options for completing their DMV business.
DMV field offices remain open, serving those with appointments and walk-ins as time and space allow.
