DMV Unveils New Self Service Terminals in Southern California Field Offices

Interactive Version

Sacramento – Getting your vehicle registration stickers just got easier.

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced today new Self Service Terminals designed to get vehicle registration stickers and cards into customers’ hands in a few minutes or less. The terminals are now available in field offices throughout the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area.

"Our Internet registration renewal option is very popular and used by more than 15,000 people daily. These machines bring that same connectivity to customers who do not 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 without an appointment and without waiting in line."

Self-service terminals with no wait times have been deployed at the following offices:
