DMV Connect is one of the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle's service outreach programs that serves Virginians who may not be able to travel to a DMV office. There are five Connect teams located throughout the Commonwealth.

What You Can Do

DMV employees carry customized cases that contain a laptop, signature pad, and camera. Only requiring electricity and an internet connection, the teams securely process real-time transactions.

The DMV Connect program can conduct all DMV transactions, except vital records and testing. Available services include:

  • Apply for or renew your ID card;
  • Apply for or renew your driver’s license;
  • Get a copy of your driving record;
  • Obtain vehicle titles, license plates, decals, or transcripts;
  • Order disabled parking placards or plates;
  • Update your address in the DMV record;
  • Update your voter registration address and/or organ donor status;
  • Request a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to set up a myDMV account, which will allow you to receive DMV notices via email or phone and conduct secure transactions on the DMV website; and
  • Search for other state services through a Virginia internet portal

More Information

The program originally was created to provide identification cards to incarcerated individuals pending release, as identification is necessary to secure jobs, open bank accounts, enter public buildings, and apply for benefits. While DMV Connect still provides services to inmates, the program has expanded to serve customers from the general public at retirement communities, government centers, homeless shelters, and more.
