What is DMV Select?

Looking for an alternative to visiting a DMV customer service center? Need a vehicle-related transaction? Visit a DMV Select location. Local governments and private entities contract with DMV to provide select DMV transactions in a secure environment. Last year, DMV Selects processed more than one-half million secure transactions.

Here's what a DMV Select partner can do for you!

Note: DMV Select partners conduct secure transactions while you wait. Not all transactions can be completed at DMV Select locations, so check the list below.

Vehicle Titles and Registrations
Original (with or without liens), substitute and replacement titles and title maintenance (to change information on title records, adding/removing of names). Original registrations, renewals (including fleets), transfers, re-issues, and plate surrenders.

Dealer title and registration transactions

License Plates
Specialized and personalized plate orders, including the issuance of motorcycle, permanent trailer, truck, taxicab and local government use plates.

Permits and Placards
Trip permits and overload permits. Original issue of handicapped parking placards.

Transcript Requests
Driver transcripts and vehicle transcripts (helpful for those who apply for job where a driver’s transcript is needed initially, submitted periodically or checked by their employer).

Address Changes, not involving issuance of a drivers license or ID card.

Returned Checks - Full or partial payment of returned check fees.
