Albany, NY - November 4, 2013 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has expanded its online services, making it easier for New York motorists to quickly and easily view the current status of their driver license and renew or replace a driver license, permit or non-driver ID online through the DMV website.

“Instead of waiting on line at the DMV, New Yorkers will now be able renew or replace their driver licenses, check the number of points on their license, and much more with the click of a button,” Governor Cuomo said. “This expansion of the DMV’s online services is part of my administration’s efforts to make all of State government more accessible and convenient for New Yorkers. I encourage all New Yorkers to consider going online for their next interaction with the DMV.”

 

In addition to the services listed above customers are also able to check the address they have on file, any driving endorsements or restrictions, the number of points on their license, and information about suspensions or revocations and the steps they can take to clear them. The new service is available to those who establish a free MyDMV account on the DMV website and is part of the agency’s Customer Service Initiative.

 

Commissioner of Motor Vehicles Barbara J. Fiala said, “The goal of our Customer Service Initiative is to make our entire operation fast, easy and convenient. This new online service is a win not only for the customers who go online but also for those who need to visit an office since wait times at DMV offices will also be decreased.”

 

While accessing driver license information and transactions, MyDMV online customers can also sign up to receive email registration renewal and inspection reminders, purchase a copy of their driver record, register to vote and enroll as an organ donor, along with more than 35 additional transactions that can be completed on the DMV website.

 

Customers with a driver license can sign up for their free MyDMV account at the DMV website (www.dmv.ny.gov). Signing up is easy and requires the customer to provide information that is printed on their license document and the last four digits of their Social Security number. Customers also select a username and password when establishing an account that will allow them to conduct additional transactions in the future.
