There are three Department of Motor Vehicles offices (DMV) in Queens, New York. All of the offices offer the basic DMV services like issuing and renewing driver's licenses and vehicle registration, but the office in College Point consistently earns the best marks for lines and service.
Save Time by Preparing for Your Visit to the Queens DMV
To save time at the DMV, check out the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles website before you go. On the website, you can download DMV forms and find out what forms of ID are accepted. The website also allows you to obtain a driver's license -- including a commercial driver's license -- change your address, take care of registration and title issues, pay or plead a traffic violation and even register to vote.
