MVC Online

The MVC now offers over 75% of transactions online at There are nearly 30 online services available at the website, including most renewals for licenses and registrations.

Before scheduling an appointment, customers should first check to see if their transaction can be completed online and skip the trip to an MVC agency.

Scheduling an Appointment for an In-Person Visit

Nearly all in-person transactions at both Licensing Centers and Vehicle Centers require an appointment scheduled at

Appointments are scheduled up to 60 days in advance and are widely available. The MVC has steadily grown the number of appointments, adding thousands each day.

Appointment Cancellations

Any appointments canceled due to an MVC agency closure must be rescheduled on the website. Customers will get an email when their appointment has been canceled.

If a customer can’t make an appointment, it should be canceled using guidance in the MVC’s confirmation email to open the appointment for others.


License/ID and registration renewals that can’t be completed online require an appointment. Renewals are not available on a walk-in basis.

Check Your Documents

Customers should check the expiration date on their documents and renew early. Most licenses can be renewed online three months before expiration and most vehicle registrations two months before expiration. If you can’t renew online, make an appointment within the renewal window. Don’t wait until you’re up against an expiration date!

Know Before You Go

Before all MVC visits, customers should log on to to check if the agency might be closed because of an employee testing positive for COVID-19, or for any other reason. The MVC has 39 locations to serve customers throughout the state.

Customers can complete many transactions online, schedule appointments, and find out more about MVC operations on the website. Customers can also identify whether a license or vehicle transaction is available online, by appointment, or walk-in by using theMVC “Cheat Sheet” on the home page of the website.
