(WFXR) — The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is adding to its website by offering an online payment plan for customers.
This new option will help more than 150 customers per week skip a trip to the DMV and help create additional appointment opportunities for those who require in-person service.
Drivers looking to purchase a license plate or register a vehicle will need to certify their vehicle is covered with the minimum insurance requirements or pay the Uninsured Motor Vehicle Fee.
If drivers do not have vehicle insurance their license will be suspended. Drivers will need to comply with these requirements: file a Financial Responsibility Insurance Certificate, pay the reinstatement fee, and pay the noncompliance fee upfront or enter into a payment plan to pay the fee over time in monthly installments.
To avoid a suspension, drivers must ensure that there are no lapses in insurance coverage for vehicles during the registration period and either deactivate or surrender license plates to DMV prior to canceling their insurance.
