Reviews of Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Locations and Hours

i went to dmv on 10/29/15 and paid for a lost ID card and have not received it yet almost a month later...can someone help??

I ordered new personalized license plates for my vehicle and I never received them. I guess when I went to the DMV in person to change my address, they failed to change it for my mailing address as well and they were mailed to my old address, where they are mailed to a "cluster" mailbox. However, when I checked online, the address on my registration was incorrect as well. No clue where my plates are and now I have to get new ones. I would think that the DMV would have a better way to track their shipments given that people's personal information is on these documents.

I had to order new tags because mine the lettering had peeled off. I told the lady at the DMV office I went to I wanted to keep what I had on my tags just needed new plates she said no problem well I got my tags and the letters all run together mine were personalized with 3 letter a & symbol and 3 more letters . Do they make them like that now. I really wanted ones just like I had. Disappointed in my new tags.

How do I renew my state inspection decal when I have passed the emissions test at the gas station?

Can someone please confirm how to update or change my address online?
