If you own a motor vehicle, then you’ve most likely interacted with a DMV at some point in your
life. “DMV” is short for Department of Motor Vehicles. The primary responsibility of a DMV is to manage
the licensing of citizens, and the registration of their vehicles. In most states, a DMV offers a wide range
of services to drivers in addition to licensing and vehicle registration. Most DMVs have the power to
test applicants, to issue titles and plates, to collect personal property taxes on vehicles, or to finalize
transfers of vehicles from one person to another. A DMV serves many important functions, but that has
not made them very popular. Many people find working with DMVs confusing and complicated, but
there are good reasons for this.

A DMV is operated at the state level. While each state must meet federal obligations, they also have
the authority to administer the program the way they see fit. This is the reason that the powers and
responsibilities of DMVs (As well as their names) may be very different from state to state. Every DMV
in the country operates under guidelines that are set by hundreds, if not thousands, of state and local
laws. As a result, DMVs are often strict on rules and rigidly bureaucratic. This causes many people to
feel overwhelmed when they use their DMV for the first time, or are forced to use an entirely new DMV
system in another state—where the rules they are used to have changed.

A DMV can be very intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. This site was created as a one-stop online
