FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 19, 2022
Sacramento – California Department of Motor Vehicles services are now available in the San Francisco main post office at 1300 Evans Ave. Suite 30, through a convenient touchscreen kiosk that offers customers another option to complete 10 common DMV tasks without visiting a field office.
The blue and gold kiosk at the San Francisco post office is the most recent placement through a DMV partnership with the U.S. Postal Service, with kiosks also in post office lobbies in Los Angeles, Oakland, Paradise, Rancho Cordova, and Sacramento. The post office lobbies are open 24 hours a day, and the kiosks accept credit/debit cards and cash.
“The DMV encourages customers to use our online services and kiosks as convenient alternatives for conducting DMV business,” said DMV Director Steve Gordon.
Many DMV transactions, including vehicle registration renewals and driver’s license renewals, can be completed at a kiosk or online at dmv.ca.gov/online. The DMV operates 365 kiosks statewide, including in post offices, retail locations, and AAA offices. For a complete list of available kiosk transactions, language options and to find a kiosk near you, visit dmv.ca.gov/kiosks.
Customers who need a REAL ID must visit a DMV office to complete the process. Californians can save time by filling out the REAL ID application online and uploading the required REAL ID documents beforehand, limiting the time needed during an office visit.
Most DMV tasks do not require an office visit. The DMV encourages customers to use its convenient service options, such as a kiosk or online. During the current surge of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, those who must visit a field office are asked to be patient and limit the number of family members who accompany them to an office to only those who are necessary to complete a transaction. For the safety of DMV employees and customers, everyone entering a DMV office is required to wear face coverings, keep their distance, wash hands frequently, and stay home if they are sick.
