Californians can complete many DMV transactions without visiting a field office

Sacramento – Californians can now complete many DMV tasks using self-service kiosks at five United States Postal Service locations throughout the state. The kiosks offer customers another convenient option to conduct DMV business without visiting a field office.

With just a few taps of their fingers, customers can complete with the most common DMV tasks with the kiosks, including renewing vehicle registration, receiving a replacement registration card or sticker, and obtaining a vehicle record. For a complete list of transactions that can be completed using a DMV kiosk, and to find one near you, visit dmv.ca.gov/kiosks.

“The DMV is developing innovative ways to save Californians time by conveniently delivering services that do not require a field office visit,” said DMV Director Steve Gordon. “Installing kiosks in post offices allows customers to complete two errands at once and highlights our commitment to offering services to customers when and where they want.”

“The United States Postal Service is excited about this new opportunity with the California DMV,” said Elvin Mercado, Vice President of Retail & Post Office Operations. “This collaboration allows flexibility to the residents of California by offering a one-stop solution when completing their postal service transactions and DMV needs. As we have committed to in the Delivering for America plan, the Postal Service will continue to work with all levels of government to engage and provide services for residents as a storefront for government services, and to generate new revenue and additional foot traffic into our retail facilities.”

The gold and blue touchscreen kiosks are available 24/7 at the following post offices:

  • Los Angeles – 7101 S. Central Avenue
  • Oakland – 1675 7th Street, Room 236
  • Paradise – 6469 Clark Road
  • Rancho – Cordova 10923 Progress Court
  • Sacramento – 2000 Royal Oaks Drive

The kiosk at the Paradise location brings back limited services to the area after the 2018 Camp Fire forced the local DMV field office to close.

The DMV offers 365 kiosks in field offices and retail locations statewide, accepting debit/credit cards and, in some locations, cash. Since the first kiosk debuted in 2010, customers have completed more than 15 million self-service transactions. Vehicle transactions are available in seven languages and driver’s license transactions in 10 languages.

No Office Visit Necessary

Most DMV tasks do not require an office visit. The DMV offers services through many channels, including kiosks and online. A complete list of online services is available at dmv.ca.gov/online, including driver’s license renewal and vehicle registration, requesting a driving record, and completing a notice of transfer and release of liability, among other tasks. Other services may be started online, such as applying for a REAL ID and uploading necessary documents.
