Delegate Praises Accessible Government Services Available in Hanover County
Central VA—Delegate Christopher K. Peace (R-Hanover) joined Hanover leaders to celebrate two milestones for residents in Hanover County. On Wednesday, April 10, Delegate Peace headlined a ribbon-cutting event at the Hanover DMV Select located in the Hanover County Courthouse complex. The ceremony celebrated the Hanover DMV Select’s five-year anniversary and highlighted continued 2013 bi-monthly DMV 2 Go mobile office service.
DMV 2 Go complements services already provided by the Hanover DMV Select operated by Scott Harris, Commissioner of the Revenue, and Scott Miller, Treasurer. The 57 DMV Selects throughout the state provide an alternative to visiting a full-service DMV customer service center. DMV Selects are in convenient locations where customers may otherwise have to drive long distances to get to a customer service center. From Hanover, the closest full-service DMV offices are in North Henrico or Richmond, both of which could be more than a 30 minute drive for some residents.
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 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.
“DMV is working to streamline programs and increase efficiencies in the delivery of services to citizens across the Commonwealth,” said Delegate Peace. “With great services like the Hanover DMV Select and the DMV 2 Go mobile offices, the Virginia DMV has become a standard for the nation that other states strive to mimic.”
DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb said, “These services for residents in Hanover County were made possible through our great partnerships with legislators like Delegate Peace, and we look forward to continuing to work with him in the General Assembly.”
DMV 2 Go has been providing supplemental services at the Hanover DMV Select on the second Wednesday of every other month since June 2012. The mobile office is scheduled to return to the Hanover Select on June 12, 2013.
