Sacramento –The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced today the availability of a vehicle registration Self Service Terminal in the South Sacramento field office at 7775 La Mancha Way. Customers can renew their vehicle registration and walk away with a new sticker and registration card in less than a minute.

"Our Internet registration renewal option is very popular and used by more than 15,000 people daily. This machine brings that same connectivity to customers who don't have access to the Internet, need registration immediately, or need to use cash," said DMV Director George Valverde. "Our customers will leave holding their new registration and sticker within a minute without an appointment and without waiting in line."

The easy to use terminal with big touch screen monitor accepts payments by cash, electronic check, credit, or debit card. The terminal is much like an ATM at a bank and directions are given in English and soon in Spanish.

Approximately 30 million customers visit 168 DMV field offices annually. Beginning in the new year, more self service terminals will be deployed across Southern California, with locations identified on the DMV website.
