New York State just made it easier for drivers to replace and renew their licenses. On Monday Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the Departmemt of Motor Vehicle expanded its online services so New Yorkers don’t have to wait on a long line to get something done. All you have to do is establish a MyDMV account on 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.”
Drivers can check on MyDMV what address is on file, get e-mails for renewal and inspection reminders, the type of driving endorsements and restrictions they may have, and any information about supnsions or revocations. Anyone with a suspended or revoked license can then check the neccessary steps it will take to get them back. You can also register to vote, and enroll as an orgon donor.
“The goal of our Customer Service Initiative is to make our entire operation fast, easy and convenient,” says the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles Barbara J. Fiala. “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.”
You can sign up for MyDMV on the DMV website (www.dmv.ny.gov.) All you have to do is provide the information printed on your license and the last four digits of your social security number.
