About This Site


Welcome to Pennsylvania's Driver and Vehicle Services website. This site serves as a virtual service center that enables customers to complete e-Government services, fill out and print forms, download fact sheets, find service locations, learn about special programs, and contact PennDOT with driver and vehicle related questions and suggestions.
Yet, this is just the beginning! PennDOT plans to continue adding e-Government services, forms, information, and educational materials over the next several years.

Online Services

Since May of 2001, Pennsylvania's citizens have had the opportunity to renew their driver's licenses, photo IDs, and vehicle registrations via the Internet. These online services are being offered as one more way for customers to quickly and efficiently complete driver and vehicle services. We also refer to these online services as "e-Government."
During the coming months, PennDOT will be adding to the list of e-Government services that customers may complete online. New services are chosen based on potential customer impact and customer feedback. Customer satisfaction continues to be our highest priority so please let us know what you think about these services. e-Government services are a way to make life a little easier for the citizens of Pennsylvania.

Shopping Cart

The shopping cart is a common part of many online business sites. A shopping cart allows a customer to keep one or more items in a temporary storage area ("the shopping cart") until the customer has finished adding transactions. After all items have been added to the shopping cart, the customer will be required to enter credit card information before leaving the site ("checkout"). If a customer leaves the site before the checkout process is completed, all of the transactions in the shopping cart will be lost, and no updates will be made to the customer’s driver or vehicle record.
