DC DMV remains operational with most necessary services provided online. Beginning June 2, 2020, the Southwest Service Center will operate on an “Appointment Only” basis through Phase 1 of the District’s reopening plan, and the following select in-person services will be available:
- First Time License and REAL ID Conversions
- First Time Title and Registrations (no renewals)
- Knowledge Testing
Customers may schedule an appointment online at https://dmv.dc.gov/page/dmv-southwest-service-center-appointment-details. All other in-person services at DC DMV locations are currently closed through Phase 1 of the District’s reopening plan. Customers are encouraged to use online options by visiting dmv.dc.gov.
DMV has extended the expiration date for all documents expiring March 1 through the duration of the public health emergency, including driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registrations, inspections, ticket payments and ticket adjudication responses, until 45 days after the health emergency concludes.
All driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and vehicle inspections scheduled to expire have been granted a waiver without penalty until DC DMV reopens at full operating capacity.
All tickets will remain in their current status for the duration of the public health emergency, and no additional penalties will be added during this period. In the interim, the public is encouraged to request adjudication and pay tickets online. Additionally, all driver license suspensions and revocations will be paused until DC DMV returns to full operating capacity.
