People often think of the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles (NYS DMV) strictly in terms of State or County offices where the public goes to obtain a driver license or renew a vehicle registration. The agency actually encompasses a much broader range of activities and programs. Some examples of these activities include:
- Educating and promoting highway safety through the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC).
- Protecting consumers through inspections of automotive and body repair facilities.
- Ensuring the safety and protecting the identities of citizens through the issuance of secure documents and investigation of fraud and auto theft activities.
- Safeguarding personal information with secure computer technology.
In addition to working for a progressive and dynamic agency, there are additional benefits to working for NYS DMV. The agency is proud to offer many advancement opportunities among its varied career paths. The Department also offers great employee benefits and the opportunity to join a team of dedicated individuals who work to serve the people of our state.
