DMV Connect expands services to the Harrisonburg area

Virginia DMVThe Virginia DMV is expanding its mobile outreach by adding two new DMV Connect teams, one of which is based in Harrisonburg.

DMV now has 11 mobile teams – four DMV 2 Go offices on wheels and seven DMV Connect “offices in a suitcase.”

The new Harrisonburg DMV Connect team is traveling the region offering convenient services to customers who might not be able to visit a DMV customer service center.

Stops include government centers, libraries, colleges and universities and more. DMV Connect teams set up at a table inside the facility and offer all transactions except vital records and testing.

Some of the scheduled visits in the Harrisonburg region include monthly stops at Harrisonburg City Hall and the Elkton Community Center, bimonthly visits to the Greene County Administration Building and quarterly trips to the Highland DMV Select office.

While more than 40 DMV transactions can be conducted online, customers who need to go to DMV can look for a mobile visit which, in many cases, has shorter wait times than customer service centers.

Customers can apply for a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license or ID card while visiting DMV Connect or DMV 2 Go.

“With an increased number of customers expected in DMV customer service centers over the next yearand-a-half to obtain a REAL ID, we want to make sure customers know they have options,” said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. “By expanding our mobile outreach, Virginians can choose the DMV service outlet that is most convenient to them.”

Customers are encouraged to renew their vehicle registrations online or at a DMV Select office; but when conducting driver’s license transactions, a DMV Connect team or DMV 2 Go mobile office may be the best choice. The full mobile operations schedule is available at

Visits are searchable by date or jurisdiction.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
