SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The California Department of Motor Vehicles is launching a new way for people to get information, called the "DMV Answer man."
The "Answer Man" will answer many frequently asked questions such as how to register your car for the first time, how to get a California driver license, and what happens if your car fails the smog test among many others.
According to DMV, "We believe that our customers will enjoy getting to know the DMV Answer man and will hopefully look forward to his future video appearances," said Department of Motor Vehicles Chief Deputy Director, Jean Shiomoto. "We are always looking for innovative ways to provide information to our customers."
During the summer, DMV hit the streets and prompted citizens to ask the DMV Answer man DMV-related questions. The Answer man answers each question in his humorous style, telling funny antidotes about himself or his friends and family while getting important DMV points across.
There will be a total of nine DMV Answer man videos that will be periodically posted on the Web with new installments coming in the future.
Don't Stand In Line, Go Online! Doing business with the DMV has never been easier. The DMV offers an array of services to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through its Website including online appointments for written and drive tests; vehicle registration and driver license renewals, selection of personalized license plates, changes of address and payment of fees via secure debit transactions.
