DMV Closed for Christmas, New Year Holidays
Customers Encouraged to Use Preferred Service Options

RICHMOND - All Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) full-service customer service centers will be closed for the Christmas holiday on Saturday, December 22, Monday, December 24, Tuesday, December 25, and Wednesday, December 26, 2012. Customer services centers (CSCs) will reopen on Thursday, December 27.

DMV offices will also be closed for the New Year’s holiday on Monday, December 31, 2012 and Tuesday, January 1, 2013. DMV offices will reopen on Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

DMV offices are normally busy after a holiday, so customers are urged to plan ahead. When offices are closed or anytime, customers may visit to set up their myDMV account and get a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to conduct more than 30 secure transactions online.

After setting up their myDMV account, customers can opt to receive their renewal notices through email or phone message rather than getting paper reminder via the U.S. mail.

Also, some DMV Select locations, which are operated by local governments or private citizens, operate outside of the state holiday closing schedule. The 57 DMV Selects across the state process vehicle-related transactions including registration renewals, titles and license plates. Driver’s licenses and ID card services are not available at DMV Select offices. To find out if a DMV Select in your area is open on a state holiday, visit
