In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Putnam County officials are operating DMV offices by appointment only. These appointments can be made online. Customers are reminded that they must have all forms completed prior to arriving for their appointment, and they must show their confirmation e-mail to enter the office at their appointment time. Any car dealer transactions will be handled on a drop off basis only. Previously scheduled learner's permit test appointments will still be honored at New York DMVs. Customers must use the drop box for renewal invitations and plate surrenders. There are online processing options for services such as driver’s license renewals, vehicle registration renewals and duplicate items.
