LAWRENCEVILLE – Delegate Roslyn Tyler (D-75th) joined Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Commissioner Richard Holcomb and the County of Brunswick to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Brunswick DMV Select.
After a brief closure, DMV and the County of Brunswick partnered to resume DMV Select services in Lawrenceville. The DMV Select office, which officially opened for business February 6, is now located at the Brunswick County Conference Center. The Brunswick DMV Select office, operated by County Administrator Dr. Charlette T. Woolridge, conducts mostly vehicle-related transactions and supplements DMV’s 75 customer service centers.
“Welcome back to the community,” said Delegate Tyler. “The services offered here are so important to the people who live in this area. Thank you for your determination to ensure DMV
services are accessible to this community.” County Administrator Dr. Charlette Woolridge echoed those sentiments. “Thank you to DMV for the vision to offer DMV Select offices across the state.”
“This Brunswick DMV Select office is a real asset to those living in the area,” said DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb. “It means citizens can avoid travel to a branch office in either South Hill or Emporia. These strong partnerships with state leaders and county government officials make this service possible for county residents.”
For customers who need DMV driver services, the Brunswick DMV Select office is supplemented by regular visits from the DMV 2 Go mobile office. The handicapped-accessible full service office-on-wheels is equipped to process all DMV transactions, such as applying for or renewing an ID card or driver’s license, obtaining vehicle titles, license plates, decals, and transcripts, and much more. Just like the 75 customer service centers across the state, DMV 2 Go offers several additional government services. In partnership with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, DMV offers fishing and hunting licenses and boat registration. Through a partnership with the Virginia Department of Health, DMV can also issue certified copies of Virginia vital records. Instead of traveling to the Division of Vital Records in Richmond, or requesting certificates by mail, customers can obtain their Virginia birth certificate on-the-spot at DMV. The agency also issues certified copies of marriage, divorce, and death certificates.
“DMV is much more than a place to renew your driver’s license or vehicle registration,” explained Commissioner Holcomb. “DMV is always working to expand its portfolio of product offerings. It’s important that we bring services to you when you need them.”
