SACRAMENTO—For added customer convenience, Self Service Terminals are now available in several Southern California public field offices, the Department of Motor Vehicles announced today. The new terminals are designed to get vehicle registration stickers and cards into customers’ hands in a few minutes or less.

The easy to use terminals with big touch screen monitors accept 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 Spanish.

“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. Our customers will leave holding their new registration and sticker without an appointment and without waiting in line.”

George Valverde, Director, California Department of Motor Vehicles
