New signs make DMV locations easier for Virginians to find

Looking for a DMV? Follow the bright blue signs.

According to a Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) press release, customer service centers are all now clearly marked with a uniform blue DMV sign that matches the style of trailblazer signs used to guide customers to DMV.

“With more than 70 locations across the commonwealth, we want to make it easy for Virginians to find DMV if they need to,” said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. “Because customers can conduct 40-plus transactions on our website, many folks only need to come to a brick-and-mortar office once every 16 years to get a new driver’s license photo. Whether you are visiting us in Culpeper, Chesterfield, Christiansburg or Courtland, these large blue signs will help you find our offices a little bit easier.”

Previously, the style and color of DMV signs varied at customer service centers throughout the state. DMV began installing the new blue signs in 2013 and completed the project this year. Each sign features the DMV logo, web address and the address of the customer service center.

Signs have also been installed in all customer service center parking lots to reserve at least one parking space close to the building for expectant mothers or families with infants, according to the release.

“Reserved parking is just one small thing we can do to make the DMV experience easier for our customers who are expecting or are visiting with infants,” Holcomb said. “We are happy to offer at least one reserved spot at each of our locations for these families or families-to-be.”
