West Virginia DMV Helps Citizens Skip the Trip with Gov2Go

August 8, 2019

CHARLESTON, W.Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 8, 2019--

Renewing vehicle registrations just got easier for West Virginia citizens. Gov2Go, a technology platform that makes it easier to interact with all levels of government, now features a “Skip the Trip” to the DMV option by allowing citizens to track and complete vehicle registration renewals using their cell phones.

Gov2Go makes it easy for customers to get started by providing multiple options. Citizens can visit www.getgov2go.com to access the website or to download the mobile app. Alternatively, citizens can also renew their vehicle registration via the DMV’s Self-Service Portal at dmv.wv.gov and check the box on the confirmation screen confirming enrollment in Gov2Go. An email will be sent with a link to complete the Gov2Go enrollment and the renewed vehicle will automatically be added to the citizen’s profile.

After completing their Gov2Go enrollment, citizens can:

“DMV strives to provide the best customer service possible by making many necessary transactions, such as vehicle registration renewals, available from the comfort and convenience of home, or at a local kiosk,” said DMV Commissioner Adam Holley. “Gov2Go’s new cell phone reminder system will encourage customers to Skip the Trip, which reduces wait times in offices and increases convenience for citizens.”

A unique feature of Gov2Go is that it isn’t just a single-purpose application.

“One of the biggest barriers to finding government resources is that citizens have to first know which entity and agency are responsible for providing it,” said West Virginia Interactive (WVI) President and General Manager, Ian McQuinn. “Gov2Go removes that barrier by bringing government interactions into one platform.”

Available in all 50 states, the Gov2Go platform is designed to expand and adapt with future technologies.
