Mission

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) administers the State’s motor vehicle laws, promotes traffic safety, protects consumers and personal information while providing customer services to the residents and businesses of this state.

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget proposes $318 million of appropriations for FY 2014-15, a decrease of $24 million from prior year levels. This decrease primarily relates to the transfer of personal service costs to the Office of Information Technology Services and the attrition of 10 FTEs.

The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 2,205 FTEs for the Department, a decrease of 10 FTEs from 2013-14 reflecting staffing efficiencies that result from the Department’s ongoing customer service initiative that allows customers to perform many transactions on line or at automated kiosks.

Major budget actions include:

  • Legislation to amend the Vehicle and Traffic Law to facilitate New York State's compliance with Federal requirements relating to certain restrictions that appear on commercial driver's licenses.
  • Legislation to authorize continued operation of DMV district offices on Saturdays.
  • Legislation to permanently extend DMV's authorization for the Accident Prevention Course Internet Program.
