What our customers say…

The folks here are SO NICE and incredibly helpful! They were so patient helping me get a license photo that didn’t look completely washed out. No wait time, literally the nicest DMV experience I’ve had.

Great experience! Most friendly people I’ve experienced at a DMV/Tax Collectors office. Taylor was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable!

Should be the standard for any DMV. Compared to other DMVs I’ve been to, I feel like I’m in paradise.

Jerry L.September 2019

The best DMV in the area, possibly the country, maybe even the world, it’s so fast, easy, there’s very nice people that work here. Couldn’t be more happily shocked and please from a DMV. Go gainesville!

Easily the most pleasant and quick DMV experience I’ve ever had by a mile!

Customer SurveyFebruary 2019

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I received excellent customer service over the last week from Lori. I had a problem with my vehicles and boat registration address that I could not resolve myself on your web page. I tried but could not find the way myself. Finally I got the help from Lori, she took care of my problem. I just wanted to say thank you for having folks like Lori. Most people complain without hesitation so I want to say thank you also without hesitation. THANK YOU LORI great job.

John S.February 2019

Today I was assisted for the second time this week by Nathan (I don’t know his last name, but I do know that he recently completed an internship with a golf company) at the DMV on 34th Blvd in Gainesville. He helped me with a complicated vehicle registration involving registering a recently purchased out of state lease buyout for a non-Florida resident active duty service member. As an active duty Army physician I keep very busy and greatly appreciate the amount of time Nathan helped me to save and the assistance he provided. I believe that he is an excellent asset for the department of motor vehicles and that he deserves to be recognized as such. Thank you.

Jason G.May 2019

Customer SurveyJune 2018

“I must say I had a pleasant experience here. I made an appointment on a Friday morning and was seen immediately. I came to get a new tag. They were a bit unsure if I had the right documents, so the young lady at the front desk checked with her supervisor and assured me I did. I then went to the window where even after some complications (on my part) the agent was very calm, kind, and patient!”
