RICHMOND, Va. — The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is offering a new service to let customers find out when they’ll get their DMV products in the mail.
DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb says that one of the most frequent customer questions is when they’ll receive their orders.
Officials say customers that have signed up for electronic notifications will now automatically receive email or text messages when their products are mailed instead of having to log into their accounts to check the status.
The agency has offered electronic notification of vehicle registration and driver’s license or ID card renewal notices since 2010.
Disabled parking placard renewals were added to the list of renewal notices available through email, text or phone message last month.
More than 1.7 million are signed up for electronic renewal notifications.
