All Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) full-service customer service centers will be closed on the following days for state holidays and observances in 2019:
- January 18: Lee-Jackson Day
- January 21: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- February 18: George Washington Day
- May 27: Memorial Day
- July 4: Independence Day
- September 2: Labor Day
- October 14: Columbus Day and Yorktown Victory Day
- November 11: Veterans Day
The holiday schedule for Thanksgiving and Christmas will be announced at a later date.
DMV customers are encouraged to save time – and perhaps a few dollars – by taking advantage of more than 40 transactions available online at dmvNOW.com. For example, a customer can renew his vehicle registration online on a holiday and avoid a last-minute trip to DMV when the office reopens and a $5 in-person fee.
Also, some DMV Select locations, run mostly by local governments, may operate outside of the state holiday closing schedule. There are 53 DMV Select offices across the state, which process mostly vehicle-related transactions including registration renewals, titles and license plates. Driver licenses and ID card services are not available at DMV Select offices.
