Online DMV reminders for Va. drivers

Virginia officials are urging drivers to sign up for an online service to get reminders about renewing their vehicle registration.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says it sends out paper renewal notices to about 5.4 million Virginians every year at a cost of $2.4 million for printing and mailing.

The new service allows Virginians to sign up with myDMV to receive their renewal notices through e-mail or phone, rather than the mail. Officials say the service provides convenience for DMV customers and saves the state printing and postage costs.

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell announced the new service Friday.

Sounds good to me. I go paperless whenever possible. I signed up.

I also like very much that they made the "change PIN" option online and customized. It used to be that you would request one, wait two weeks for it to show up in the mail, then forget it within two months. Much, much nicer this way--the questions they ask would be difficult to answer if you weren't who you claimed to be.
