Department of Motor Vehicles transactions. Allows the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to enter into contracts with contractors of state or federal agencies to conduct customer service transactions on behalf of such agencies for the benefit of Virginia residents. The bill allows DMV to receive a portion of the transaction fee required by the responsible agency or contractor to defray DMV's costs, provides a $1 discount for specified DMV licensing transactions conducted online, and ensures that DMV does not charge fees to federal, state, and local government agencies for information they request provided that such agencies do not charge the Commonwealth when it requests the same or similar information from those agencies. Finally, the bill provides for a driver's license classification for passenger cars and eliminates the requirement that individuals under the age of 21 who have one or more specified convictions retake the written driver's license examination. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
