Hamilton, VA – After nearly a year of
negotiation and work, Delegate Dave LaRock is pleased to announce that DMV
Select service is being restored at the Virginia Regional Transit (VRT)
location in Purcellville. Following a Dec. 11, 2015, FBI raid on VRT’s office,
DMV was forced to close the Purcellville Select office. Delegate LaRock has
been in communication with Federal, State, and local government officials for
the last year, working to restore the DMV Select service in Western Loudoun.
DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb has notified Del. LaRock that the DMV Select service
will be restored under VRT’s new management by the end of 2016.
Delegate LaRock issued the following statement: “I am grateful for the assistance of Congresswoman Comstock, Commissioner Holcomb, Senator Richard Black, and Purcellville Mayor Kwasi Fraser as we worked to find a suitable arrangement to re-open DMV service in Western Loudoun. DMV also has committed to further service expansion in Loudoun County, to help relieve the overloaded Leesburg full-service customer service center.”
DMV tries to make as many transactions as possible available online in an attempt to reduce costs and wait times. The DMV website has a map with currentwait times for all of their Full-service Customer Service Centers here, or you can check on the Leesburg wait time here. Whenever possible, Del. LaRock encourages constituents to completetransactions online, visit the Purcellville DMV Select or Berryville DMV Select at 6103 Lord Fairfax Highway, Berryville, or utilize the visits from DMV 2 Go, the agency’s mobile full-service customer service center. The DMV 2 Go schedule for the coming month in our area is:
Berryville DMV Select
6103 Lord Fairfax Highway
Lovettsville Community Center
57 East Broad Way
Purcellville Town Hall
221 S Nursery Avenue
DMV continues to look for ways to enhance their services. This month, the Stephens City Motor Carrier Service Center in Frederick County began to offer TSA Pre✓® and Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWIC). TSA Pre✓® provides expedited security screening for travelers leaving select airports across the United States, and TWIC provides access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities.
