Special Notice

Changes due to COVID-19 have resulted in a large increase in the DMV Select traffic at County offices of the Treasurer and the Commissioner of Revenue. This has forced some changes in the way the offices operate. Beginning September 28, 2020, we will start implementing appointments for all vehicle and trailer title transactions, including substitute or replacement titles. You may schedule an appointment by visiting and completing the steps to book the appointment there.

For the following transactions we are still allowing walk-ins: registration renewals, reissue of lost or stolen decals, reissue of plates, overload permits, handicap placard or handicap plates, driving transcript or compliance summary, address change, or surrendering plates.

We wish to provide the best service to all of our citizens, therefore we ask that those wishing to conduct County business with the Treasurer or the Commissioner of Revenue bypass the DMV line and go to the nearest available Deputy.

****Just a Reminder we can not do Driver’s License or IDs****
