DMV Mobile Office Returns to Serve Customers at State Fair
Renew Your Driver’s License, Apply to Register to Vote, Plus More on DMV 2 Go
RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will return to the State Fair of Virginia this year offering convenient service for customers.
On Wednesday and Thursday, October 3 and 4 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, October 5 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., DMV 2 Go will be open for business near the ticket booth at the main entrance in a location convenient to all customers coming in and out of the State Fair at the Meadow Event Park, located at 13111 Dawn Blvd. in the Doswell area of Caroline County.
New this year, DMV 2 Go service will be open three days and match fair hours. On Friday, DMV’s mascot Snapdragon will be at the event to help educate children about the importance of buckling their seatbelts and school bus safety.
The handicapped-accessible full service office can provide all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver’s licenses and adult and child ID cards. Knowledge tests are available, and applicants may get their pictures taken. Customers can also apply for Virginia’s new veterans ID card, order disabled parking placards or plates, and get vehicle titles, license plates and decals. If Virginians have recently moved, they can stop in to update their address on their DMV record. Customers can search for other state services through a wireless Virginia Internet portal. The deadline to apply to register to vote in the November election is October 15. Customers can apply to register to vote or update their voter registration address on DMV 2 Go.
"We had great success at the State Fair of Virginia last year serving nearly 200 customers over the course of two days, and we are excited to return for three days with extended hours this year," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Last year, the most popular transactions included driver’s license renewals and signing up for our e-notifications. We expect many more of those types of transactions this year, along with folks applying to register to vote."
