DMV Expands Mobile Service Offerings to Include Vital Records | News
RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has added another convenient service option to its long list of choices for customers: Vital Records through DMV Connect — the Department’s 14 mobile service centers. Customers can now request Virginia birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates at any DMV Connect mobile visit.
DMV Connect is DMV’s portable “office in a suitcase”, delivering the full range of DMV services when visiting government centres, private businesses, libraries and other convenient locations throughout the Commonwealth.
Since 2014, customers have been able to purchase vital records at all full-service DMV Customer Service Centers (CSCs) through DMV’s partnership with the Vital Records Division of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). To date, more than 1.1 million Virginia vital records have been issued at CSC DMVs.
To obtain a Vital Record through DMV, customers complete an application, submit required documentation, and pay a $14 fee. DMV is able to print vital records on site at CHCs. With DMV Connect, certificates are sent to customers by VDH.
“Customers love the convenience of DMV Connect, and they also love being able to access vital records through DMV,” said Acting DMV Commissioner Linda Ford. “We are delighted to be able to combine these two excellent service options. With appointments alongside walk-in service at our 75 CSCs Monday through Friday, over 50 online transactions at dmvNOW.com, postal and telephone service, and 57 DMV Select partner offices, there truly are more ways than ever before to carry out your DMV activity. ”
DMV Connect’s 14 mobile teams are regionally positioned to provide service statewide.
