DMV Offering Some Mail-In Services

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

By Executive Order by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Tompkins County DMV has been closed to the public for all in-person transactions. 

However, we have deemed essential some transactions to make sure residents have access during this time.  The Tompkins County Department of Motor Vehicles will now be accepting new vehicle registrations through private sales to be processed in our Ithaca office – by mail only. This will allow for the transfer of vehicle registrations, but due to our limited staffing, this process cannot be used to register snowmobiles, boats, trailers, or motorcycles.

Individuals can send in:

  • MV82
  • DTF802
  • Proof of insurance
  • Title
  • Copy of license
  • Blank signed check

The DMV will send you back a copy of your check along with your registration and plates.

We will also be processing plate surrenders by mail. Send the plates in a self-addressed stamped envelope.
