“DMV 2 Go” Pilot Program Now at Beatley Central Library

The City and Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) have partnered to bring “DMV 2 Go,” a mobile, full-service DMV customer service center, to Beatley Central Library on June 15. The mobile unit, a repurposed and remodeled RV, offers all the services of a regular DMV, but there is no long wait. With three tellers, customers can get their license, renew their registration-- even take road tests and more. If the pilot event at Beatley Library is a success, staff hopes to expand the program to monthly visits at various locations around the City.
