ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles is expanding its online services.

According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the goal is to make it easier for New Yorkers to do business with the DMV from the comfort of their homes. It would also allow the DMV to serve more customers in person who can’t complete their transactions online.


The pilot program would offer the written learner permit tests for passenger cars and motorcycles online. It is also piloting a process to allow customers to register their vehicles online.

"These online options will make it more convenient for New Yorkers to access the services they need while reducing congestion in the DMV offices and helping continue our shared progress in stopping the spread of this virus.,” Cuomo said.

In-person services still have limited availability and can only be done if the service can not be completed online, by mail or drop box. Reservations are required for all in-person transactions.
