Va. dealers must use new DMV forms as of July 1

Starting July 1, Virginia dealers will need to destroy old copies of 12 DMV forms and replace them with new ones. The change stems from legislation (HB 2189), adopted unanimously by the 2015 General Assembly, that transfers the licensing and regulatory responsibility of motorcycles, RVs and trailers from the DMV to the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board (MDVB).

July 1, 2015.

MVDB has also developed a brand new form, MVDB 57, Dealer-Operator/Salesperson Qualification Test Application. Applicants taking the salesperson or dealer-operator tests at a DMV Customer Service Center will complete this form before taking the appropriate test. Itês a very simple –check and go test” form designed to streamline test registration time at DMV Customer Service Centers.

Dealers should prepare to destroy all old form stock that they have on hand. July dealer renewal applications will print on current form stock. But starting in August, all dealer renewals will be printed on new forms.

All forms listed in the table will be available online at no later than July 1. Using online, fillable forms is the easiest way for dealers to print and store only what is needed. MVDB and DMV will keep only a very limited supply of these forms on hand for mailing to dealers.

MVDB and DMV have worked collaboratively on implementing the law to ensure a smooth transition effective July 1. The new and updated forms are the result of simplifying many dealer forms and including only information required for processing. Please take time to review this listing.
