The NYS Department of State is required to maintain online the complete New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR). This includes The Regulations of the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles (NYCRR Title 15). The NYCRR is available through the website of the NYS Department of State.
Copies of specific DMV regulations can be downloaded from the business forms section of the DMV forms page. The DMV web site also has a Small Business Regulation Guide for the DMV Motor Vehicle Inspection Regulations (Part 79).
The DMV Regulatory Agenda is a list of Regulations that the DMV plans to change during the year 2012. NYS law does not require the DMV to make all of the proposed changes on the Regulatory Agenda. The document lists changes that the DMV has considered, but the document can be amended if there are changes in law or in the requirements of the DMV.
The DMV can recommend and make changes to the regulations that do not appear in the current Regulatory Agenda. The DMV will update the regulatory Agenda as other proposed changes are considered.
This page does not list every proposed change to the DMV Regulations. Visit the web site of the NYS Department of State to learn how to find other proposed changes to the regulations of NYS agencies.
Currently, there are no proposed changes to DMV regulations that require comments.
Note: Newly adopted regulations regarding dangerous repeat alcohol or drug offenders are available on the Changes that Affect Multiple Alcohol/Drugged-Driving Offenders page.
