DMV is an abbreviation for “Department of Motor Vehicles”, which is a state-level government agency responsible for vehicle licensing and registration.
DMV is a generic term used by many, but not all states. You’re most likely to interact with them when applying for or renewing your license, or to register your vehicles.
Depending on which DMV you’ll be using, you’ll find their contact information after doing a search. You’ll want to work directly with the DMV you’ll be visiting.
When you go to their site, if it’s not on the main page, look for “contact” or “about us” sections, which usually list important details like their phone number, address, and hours.
If you are from the state or a foreigner with a student, exchange, investment or legal resident visa, you can apply for your driver’s license with the following documents:
You’ll need to bring in proof of your identity. That means that it shows your name, date of birth, and your residence. But, that’s not enough. They’ve tightened the regulations and there are now 6 points of identification you need to show. There is a list on the official DMV for the state of New York, here.
Here are the steps to use when completing your license application form.
Also, if you’ve changed your name due to marriage or divorce, you’ll need to show the progression of name change with official documents.
A commercial driving test tests your ability to operate a heavy, commercial vehicle. You need a special license called a CDL (commercial driving license).
commercial license is needed to operate a vehicle having a vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of at least 26,000 pounds or more. Another instance is if you’ll be driving a vehicle that carries 16 or more passengers.
The prices of the real ID and ID cards differ. While the real ID cost $35, the ID cards cost $30. This is subject to change. Always check with your DMV before arriving so you have the proper amount.
It varies per state and the type of driver license class. You’ll need to check locally with your DMV, as each sets their own rates.
Interestingly, the license and driving fees vary from state to state. Some will not have a cost, others charge for it. Again, you’ll need to check your local DMV to get the correct answer.
The road test takes roughly 25 to 30 minutes. Factor in additional time for paperwork, or waiting, as there may be multiple appointments taking place that day. Also, be sure to arrive 15 minutes early.
