Department of Motor Vehicles Select Services

In the DMV Select program, local governments and private entities contract with DMV to provide select DMV transactions in a secure environment. Each DMV Select partner has online access to DMV, allowing the partner to update customer records immediately, as well as, issue vehicle decals. Last year, our DMV Selects processed more than 60,315 secure transactions.

Note: DMV Select partners conduct secure transactions while you wait. Not all transactions can be completed at DMV Select locations, so check the list below.

  • Vehicle titles and registrations: Original (with or without liens), substitute and replacement titles and title maintenance (to change information on title records, adding / removing of names). Original registrations, renewals, transfers, re-issues and plate surrenders
