Keep Your DMV Money Local!

Get your registration or DMV documents quicker and keep your taxes down by coming to our office.

Did you know that every time you send back your DMV documents in the pink envelope provided by NYS DMV, you are in fact sending your DMV money to Albany?

Did you know that 12.7% of all transactions that come across our counter at DMV support your local economy? When you renew with the Utica address on your renewal, we receive no money to help offset the property taxes.

Please make the commitment to keep your DMV money local by doing business directly with our local office. In the future when you receive your DMV renewal, please remember to visit our convenient location in the Hancock Street Plaza or mail it to our address: 301 Third Street Ithaca, NY 14850.

Please think the next time you receive your pink renewal envelope in the mail and choose to keep your money working here at home

Want to get Veterans Status on your license?

If you are a qualified U.S. military veteran who was honorably discharged, and you have a NY State driver license, learner permit or non-driver photo ID card, you can have the word "Veteran" printed on the upper left hand of your photo document.

There is no additional fee for the veteran status designation on your document, but all regular transaction fees will apply.

Fill out MV44 and bring in your DD214
