DMV Offers 2-Year License Renewals

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles now offers a two-year driver’s license or identification card renewal online and through the mail rather than making an appointment for in-person service. DMV enacted this option so more slots are available for required in-person services.

DMV is notifying eligible customers about the new service. Customers who have made appointments for renewals can cancel and renew their credentials online or via mail-in service.

For more information and to renew these credentials, visit dmvNOW.com.
