DMV to provide one-day mobile services
On May 23, customers can perform all transactions at Bridgewater Plaza.
For one day next week, lake residents can avoid the drive and lines at the Rocky Mount and Bedford DMVs. On Wednesday, May 23, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles will have its Roanoke-based mobile customer service center, DMV 2 Go, stationed at Bridgewater Plaza from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The handicapped-accessible, full-service mobile office provides all DMV transactions including driver's licenses and ID cards, disabled parking placards, vehicle titles, license plates and decals. In addition, Virginians who recently moved can stop in to update their addresses on their DMV record and also update voter registration and organ donor status.
Thanks to a new partnership with Virginia's Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, DMV customers can now buy hunting and fishing licenses.
DMV 2 Go is equipped with the latest wireless technology to accomplish the needed connection to DMV's computer systems. The wireless capability allows the units to provide secure service at virtually any location.
"Our goal is to bring services to our customers at a time and place convenient for them," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Visiting Smith Mountain Lake is the perfect opportunity for customers to conduct their DMV business quickly and efficiently."
