Full Service DMV Up and Running on Post at Fort Lee
More than 2,000 customers already served
RICHMOND - More than 2,000 military personnel, family members and staff at Fort Lee have already taken advantage of the post’s newest convenience - a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Customer Service Center (CSC).
The new Fort Lee CSC opened its doors on October 22, 2012, in the Bloom Building. The office is approximately 1,300 square feet with four service windows and three testing stations. This full-service office offers all DMV transactions. You can apply for or renew your Virginia driver's license or ID card - available for adults, children and veterans; take a road test; get your picture taken; order military-themed license plates; update your address, voter registration and organ donor status; order disabled parking placards, and much more.
More than 110 new Virginians have visited the CSC to conduct business, including more than 90 customers who applied for Virginia driver's licenses for the first time. Nearly 200 longtime Virginians have renewed their driver's licenses or vehicle registrations at the Fort Lee CSC.
"This new CSC saves Fort Lee residents and staff a trip to one of DMV's busier offices in Hopewell, Petersburg or Chester," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "Conveniently located right here on post next to the bowling alley, we are excited to be part of the Fort Lee community and are committed to providing top-notch customer service to soldiers, family members and staff."
Service at the Fort Lee CSC is only for individuals with post access credentials.
"The demand for a permanent office in this rapidly expanding community was evident by the popularity of our mobile office visits over the past year-and-a-half," said Holcomb. "The number of customers we have already served since late October proves that this service was much needed. Having this office resource right on post provides unique assistance before or after deployment, or for family members while a loved one is away."
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to noon. This new office brings the total number of DMV CSCs to 80, including a satellite office at the Pentagon and five mobile offices.
