What does the DMV do?

A department of motor vehicles (DMV) is in charge of processing vehicle registration, including tag replacement and sticker renewal, as well as overseeing driver's license testing and issuing permits and licenses. For new drivers who wish to obtain a license, the DMV administers both written exams and road tests. The DMV also records vehicle title transfers, unless your state has a separate government department which handles that task.

Commercial drivers must meet medical qualifications and background checks, and all drivers must pass a vision test, road test, and written exam before receiving a license. In most states, DMV offices require mandatory car insurance policies or insurance bonds before they issue or replace car registration documents. Commercial vehicles also need specialized insurance and bonding coverage. If you've been searching for a specific driver service but haven't found it under the name DMV, try looking under alternative names such as motor vehicle department or bureau of motor vehicles.

Which documents do I need in order to obtain a vehicle registration?

To receive a car registration certificate, you'll probably need to submit pollution and safety inspection certificates, odometer disclosure statement, and proof of insurance. You'll also need to provide a car title application accompanied by a bill of sale.

How many questions do I need to answer correctly on the written exam before I can take the driving test?

DMV offices in different states set various standards for passing their exams. As a general rule, in most states, you'll need to correctly answer at least 80 to 90 percent of the test questions before scheduling a road test.
