DMV Services in the District of Columbia

You must go to the Department of Motor Vehicles if you reside in Washington, DC, for all of your motor vehicle and licensing requirements. The DMV's service centers, test offices, and road test lots are located all over the district. Additionally, you can have your vehicle inspected at a local inspection station. Before visiting the DMV, it is a good idea to check with your local office as office hours differ from one location to the next.

Check the Wait Times

No one enjoys waiting in a long line. Fortunately, the DMV website allows you to check your wait times. To determine if you should go right away or wait a bit till the lines thin out, check the wait times and webcams.

Getting Ready for Your Trip

You might want to head right out if the wait times seem reasonable. But first, make sure you're ready. All of your forms from the DMV website should be printed out. Before heading out, fill them out. When you arrive, you won't have to deal with the paperwork. You can go through the line, hand over the forms, and get what you want. This will greatly speed up the process. 

Avoid the Trip

You can use online services to avoid going to the DMV. The DMV provides a wide range of online services including the replacement or renewal of ID cards or driver's licenses. Additionally, you can request your driving records, change your address, renew your registration or residential parking, and request a personalized tag.
