Sacramento— A brand new online experience awaits customers the next time they visit the Department of Motor Vehicles' newly redesigned website. The slick, uncluttered layout offers ease of use and better features that allow users to quickly and easily find needed information with a few clicks of the mouse!

"Our goal is to deliver a fresh, efficient, and easy-to-use website that will make your online experience more pleasant," said DMV Director George Valverde. "We developed a website that not only offers improved functionality, but allows our customers to easily browse, learn, interact and conduct business online."

When customers log on to, they are greeted with bold and dynamic content that highlights DMV's expanded online services, including appointments, obtaining a copy of driving records, renewing vehicle registration, filing a Notice of Release of Liability (NRL), helpful alerts and updated information.

The sleek navigation bar has been simplified to provide centralized access to all DMV online services and resources.

The enhanced, bilingual site also allows customers to 'Connect With Us' through social media channels, like Facebook, Twitter, and DMV's unique YouTube channel, which offers videos on the latest DMV innovations and programs, as well as teen and adult driving lessons. And an embedded video player invites users to view an informative "Check Us Out!" video that showcases all the department has to offer.

DMV officials said the features offered by this re-vamped, user-friendly website are just another step in the continuous effort to improve customer service with the use of cutting edge technology.
