DMV’s Strategic Plan serves as a roadmap to where DMV is going over the next 24 months, how we are going to get there, and how we will know if we have realized our intended outcomes.

At DMV, we use performance measures to gauge our progress towards achieving our goals. The performance measures listed below serve as indicators of how well DMV is performing.

Field Office Wait Times

Each year, DMV handles approximately 27 million customer transactions at our 169 field office locations. We make every effort to give our customers a field office experience that is quick and easy.

Driver License Renewal Customers Served

DMV offers several ways for our customers to complete their business with us. As an alternative to field office service, customers may renew their driver license via mail, telephone or Internet. This performance measure shows the number of driver license renewal customers served, by service option.

Vehicle Registration Renewal Customers Served

Other than being served in a field office, customers may renew their vehicle registration by dropping it in the mail, calling one of our Call Centers, going online, going into a local Auto Club, using one of our participating Business Partners or by using one of our self-service terminals available in select field offices.
