GARDNERVILLE – Ribbon-cutting ceremonies for a new “DMV in a Box” kiosk in Gardnerville are set for Wednesday (May 28) at 1 pm. at Raley’s Supermarket, 1363 U.S. 395. The Raley’s location replaces a kiosk previously located in Scolari’s in Gardnerville, which closed last year. Since then, customers have had to travel to Carson City to conduct DMV transactions.
DMV Director Troy Dillard, representatives from Raley’s and DMV kiosk vendor Intellectual Technologies Inc. will be in attendance. Several local and state elected officials have been invited to the ceremony.
"We're pleased to partner with the DMV to bring their services to our store," said Mike Mazza, store team leader for Raley's. "This will provide an innovative, quick and easy way for the community to get their basic DMV needs met."
Prior to the Scolari’s store closure last year, the kiosk at that location was handling more than 500 transactions per month.
"Our kiosks have been widely accepted as a great way to conduct your DMV business right in your neighborhood," said DMV Director Troy Dillard. "We are now looking to expand kiosk services to include other governmental business."
DMV touch-screen kiosks can process a registration renewal, print out a driver history record, order a duplicate driver’s license, instruction permit or ID card, reinstate a suspended vehicle registration and process exemptions for registration renewals. They offer services and audio assistance in both English and Spanish. Kiosks are located at all Nevada DMV offices and in 26 supermarkets and other private locations.

DMV customers completed 560,500 transactions at kiosks during 2013. These are customers who otherwise would have waited in line to be served by a technician. The total number of transactions completed by the DMV website, kiosk and other alternate technology topped one million in that same period.
