DMV Dash Pass

Dash Pass on a cell phone

Dash Pass is easy! You can get in line from wherever you are by text, phone call or online from your desktop. There is nothing to download.

We'll text or call you with updates, options and an estimated wait time as your turn approaches. You don't have to wait at the DMV office!

There is no need to check in again once you get to the office - but please make sure you have everything you need for your license or vehicle registration. Simply watch the monitors for the last four digits of your phone number.

Have your transaction ready!
