Monticello, NY - After mailing in their license and registration renewals, NYS Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customers have reported long delays in receiving their documentation back from the State offices in Albany and Utica.
“Residents may not realize that they can mail those same renewal forms in to us at the Sullivan County DMV Office – and they’ll get what they need quicker than mailing to a State office,” notes County Clerk Russell Reeves, who oversees the local DMV operations. “This only applies to mailed renewals for licenses and registrations.”
“What’s good about handling these locally is that Sullivan County retains 12.5% of each transaction amount, whereas we get nothing if it all goes directly through the State,” he explains. “So in addition to faster service by mail, doing your DMV business locally brings revenue back to your home County.”
The mailing address is Sullivan County DMV, 100 North Street, Monticello, NY 12701.
While appointments are required to visit the DMV office in the Government Center, Reeves affirms his staff remain available to assist with any transactions people need. Appointments are typically available within a few days and can only be made online at https://sullivanny.us/Departments/Clerk/DMV.
