DMV and Motor Vehicle Dealer Board
Starting Monday (May 18), the Virginia DMV began reopening CSCs statewide. As its website states, “DMV is taking every precaution in planning a thoughtful, phased approach to safely reopening customer service centers.” Click here to learn more about the agency’s reopening plan.
The agency urges customers to use online or mail service when possible. When it’s not, DMV will serve customers in person and by appointment. That includes administering salesperson and dealer-operator testing. Click here to schedule an appointment.
We have been working with the Virginia Motor Vehicle Dealer Board to expand salesperson testing capability without reliance on a DMV appointment.
Dealers may reach out to the Dealer Board for remote testing, by-appointment, at a dealership. For appointments, call Ann Majors at (804) 367-1100, ext. 3016#.
We thank the DMV and Dealer Board staff for their assistance.
