DMV 2 Go Provides Service at Chesapeake DMV Select
Event to Celebrate Five-year anniversary and Mobile Office
RICHMOND - The Chesapeake DMV Select will celebrate its five-year anniversary at a flag presentation on Monday, October 28 at 10 a.m. The office is located at 306 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, 23322. A number of legislators and local leaders are slated to attend.
DMV's mobile office, called DMV 2 Go, will also be on site providing supplemental service from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. DMV 2 Go will be parked in front of the planetarium at Chesapeake City Hall. DMV 2 Go is a full-service office on wheels. The mobile office is handicapped-accessible and provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver's licenses and ID cards and applying for Virginia's new veterans ID card. DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Chesapeake DMV Select operated by Ray Conner, Commissioner of the Revenue.
The 57 DMV Selects throughout the state provide an alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. DMV Selects process a number of transactions including vehicle titles and registrations, license plates, and transcript requests. DMV Selects do not issue driver's licenses, learner's permits or ID cards, and that's where DMV 2 Go comes in.
The handicapped-accessible full service mobile office provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver's licenses and ID cards. Road and knowledge tests are available, and applicants may get their pictures taken and complete vision screenings. Veterans can also apply for Virginia's veterans ID card.
"We rely on our partners like the Chesapeake DMV Select to help bring our services at a time and place convenient for our customers," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "It's been great having this DMV Select in the Chesapeake community for five years."
