Newport News City Hall DMV Select Celebrates 5 Years of Service
Commissioner of the Revenue Office Provides DMV Services
RICHMOND - The Newport News City Hall DMV Select, which provides selected DMV services, will hold a five-year anniversary event on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 11 a.m. The Newport News Select is located at the Commissioner of the Revenue office inside City Hall at 2400 Washington Avenue, Newport News, 23607. The office is jointly operated by the Commissioner of the Revenue and the City Treasurer. The anniversary celebration will feature remarks from state and local officials and a flag presentation ceremony.
"We are excited to celebrate our five-year partnership with DMV," said Priscilla Bele, Newport News Commissioner of the Revenue. "Five years ago, DMV and our office determined that there was a need for another convenient location for DMV transactions, especially for citizens required to resolve issues at City Hall before conducting DMV business."
"Our customers have a fast and convenient option for completing all their government business without traveling to two separate locations," added Marty Eubank, Newport News City Treasurer.
DMV’s mobile customer service center, called DMV 2 Go, will also serve customers outside the Newport News DMV Select on November 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., supplementing the many transactions already available at the Newport News Select.
The Newport News DMV Select is one of 57 Select partners throughout the state. Select partners, who are private citizens and local governments, contract with DMV to conduct vehicle-related transactions. Each DMV Select has online access to DMV allowing the partner to update customer records immediately as well as issue vehicle decals. The Newport News DMV Select’s hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
"DMV Selects allow us to ensure that heavily-populated areas where the agency cannot build multiple customer service centers are not underserved," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "DMV Selects have been an integral part of DMV’s service delivery model for 80 years."
