Virginians Will Soon Be Able to Renew Drivers' Licenses Online

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has decided to add a driver's license renewal feature to its Internet site this fall as the next step in the department's rollout of online services.

"There's been an increasing demand for convenient services via the Web," said Pam Goheen, a DMV spokeswoman. "We're targeting October for the license renewal feature...and the online services are constantly evolving."

In addition to renewing their licenses online, Virginia drivers also will be able to order specialty license plates and pay for them with a credit card on the DMV's World Wide Web site by November, it is hoped, Goheen said. Currently, users can only reserve a plate online for up to 90 days.

Goheen said another feature that should be added by November is a personal identification number system that would allow for address changes over the Web.

The site (www.dmv.state.va.us) has offered registration renewal since May. The DMV recorded nearly 3,500 online registrations in July, up from about 1,300 in June. The state performs about 350,000 registrations each month.
