DC DMV to Halt Some In-Person Dealer Services as Public Walk-Up Appointments Resume

With the DC DMV resuming walk-in appointments to the public as of this week, dealerships and third-party providers will not be able to utilize walk-in services at DMV centers between now and October 1.

Dealers and third-party providers must continue utilizing the DC DMV’s mail service for titling and registering vehicles between now and October 1. For more information on the DMV’s mail processing service, please visit the Dealer Services Page on their website or email dcdmvdealerinfo@dc.gov.

Additionally, the DC DMV offers an Online Dealer Interface System (ODIS), a free system designed to allow dealers and third-party providers to register vehicles electronically. If you are an approved dealer, you can use ODIS to issue titles, registrations, inspection documents, and license plates to District residents who purchase vehicles from your dealerships.

If you have not registered for ODIS, we strongly encourage you to do so. Please contact Joe Koch at jk@wanada.org for links to the appropriate registration forms, or reach out to the DC DMV dealer information bureau at the email above. Once you have completed the forms, please submit them Darnell Fountain at the DMV (darnell.fountain@dc.gov).
