DMV Director George Valverde said that the department continues to leverage new technologies to bring forth additional online options for customers. In December, the department unveiled Personalized Online Accounts whereby customers can manage their DMV business online in a secure environment. And, later this spring, the department anticipates making renewals of identification cards also available through the internet.
Total Online Business, 2005 – 2010 2005: 3.544 million 2006: 4.956 million 2007: 6.774 million 2008: 7.688 million 2009: 9.408 million 2010: 10.533 million
“Doing business online makes sense for both our customers, and the DMV. We are continually looking for new and innovative ways to leverage the internet so that we can provide faster and easier alternatives for customers.”
