When offices are closed or anytime, customers may visit www.dmvNOW.com to set up their myDMV account and get a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to conduct more than 30 secure transactions online.
After setting up their myDMV account, customers can opt to receive their renewal notices through email or phone message rather than getting paper reminder via the U.S. mail.
Also, some DMV Select locations, which are operated by local governments or private citizens, operate outside of the state holiday closing schedule. There are 57 DMV Selects across the state, which process vehicle-related transactions including registration renewals, titles and license plates. Driver licenses and ID card services are not available at DMV Select offices. To find out if a DMV Select in your area is open on a state holiday, visit www.dmvNOW.com/DMVSelect.
