2740 Department of Motor Vehicles
Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is to:

  • Promote highway safety and financial responsibility by regulating the issuance and retention of driver licenses and personal identification cards to non-drivers, and by licensing and regulating occupations and businesses that manufacture, transport, sell or dispose of vehicles, and that provide driver training instruction.
  • Protect the public interest in vehicle and vessel ownership through the registration and titling process.
  • Collect various revenues for state and local agencies.

Since department programs drive the need for infrastructure investment, each department has a related capital outlay program to support this need. For the specifics on DMV's Capital Outlay Program see "Infrastructure Overview."
