Customer service delivery options

To serve the citizens of Wisconsin more efficiently, we've developed a number of self-service options to help you avoid a visit to a DMV customer service center. Every vehicle transaction can be done online, by mail or with a DMV approved third party partner. Whether renewing your vehicle registration or selling your car to a neighbor, you can do it in the comfort of your own home – or use a device since we’re mobile-friendly. You may also change your address, obtain a duplicate/replacement driver license, renew your ID, purchase a crash/accident report and any number of other activities. Get out of line and go online!

If you do require our assistance, our staff are happy to help. We serve more than two million customers in person annually at our customer service centers around the state and handle more than 1.5 million phone calls and emails each year.  

Everyone at DMV is committed to helping our customers in a fast, efficient and friendly fashion.
