From the Director
I am pleased to present the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Planning is critical to our success as an organization. As our work evolves, we must take a close look at where we are today, where we want to go in the future, and develop a clear roadmap to get there.
Public service has, and always will be, fundamental to our work as a department. Our Strategic Plan reflects our commitment to delivering superior customer service and implementing convenient and innovative service options. Changes in technology continue to give us more opportunities to modernize our systems, streamline processes, and ensure operational sustainability. Building an agile workplace and workforce will further enable our capabilities to meeting both current and future customer expectations and needs.
We take fraud very seriously and we are taking actions to eliminate fraud. We continually strive to improve consumer protection and traffic safety, and ensure the integrity of our licensing and registration programs.
The plan is the foundation for the future of the DMV, to meet the expectations of customers today and tomorrow. I hope that you will take the time to read this document and learn more about what the DMV has planned for the future.
