SENECA COUNTY RESIDENTS:
Please check the expiration of your Driver’s License and Registrations. The State is not sending out renewal notices. Many customers are stating that they are not receiving notices in the mail. If you live in Seneca County you may come into the Department of Motor Vehicles and we will assist you in getting them renewed.
For drivers licenses you will need the eye test report filled out by your eye doctor or if you get an eye test done by a pharmacist (please include a note telling us that you went to the pharmacy). We cannot process Real ID’s, Enhanced or Commercial Licenses by the drop box procedure.
