Broome County adds mobile DMV in Harpursville, Windsor

Harpursville, NY. – Broome County Executive Debbie Preston joined Broome County Clerk Rick Blythe, Broome County Legislator Stephen Flagg and members of the Office for Aging to announce the expansion of the Broome County Mobile DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). 

Starting today, January 4th, the DMV will provide a mobile office in Harpursville at the Eastern Broome Senior Center on Mondays and in the Windsor Town Hall on Thursdays starting January 7, 2016. 

The hours for both will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and close from 12-12:30 p.m. for lunch.

“We understand it can be difficult for some senior citizens to come to the current DMV offices in Binghamton and Endicott,” says Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.  “And we know some may not have computers to do their transactions online so we want to be able to bring these very important services to them.”

“These new locations are equipped to process driver’s licenses and registrations”, said County Clerk Blythe.  “We’ve been working on expanding the unit for the past few months and I’m happy that we were able to make it happen”.

“I’m proud to announce that Town of Colesville and Eastern Broome residents will now have access to this service,” says County Legislator Stephen Flagg. “I urge everyone to take advantage of the mobile DMV and I applaud County Clerk Rick Blythe and OFA Director Jamie Kelly for providing greater access to this service to those in our rural communities.”

The Mobile DMV unit is not a vehicle, but rather computer equipment and a camera housed in large, portable suitcases.  It requires an internet connection to access the NYSDMV’s computer system.  The unit was approved by the County Executive and Broome County Legislature in November.

The Mobile DMV is able to process non driver identification, driver’s licenses, and registrations.  We regret that it is not equipped to process Reciprocities (exchanging out of state license for NYS license), Enhanced Driver Licenses, CDL Exams or process Enforcement transactions, including the issuance of Conditional or Restricted Licenses.  Citizens may visit the Binghamton or Endicott offices for these transactions.

“This is a great addition to our senior center in Harpursville,” says Broome County Office for Aging Director Jamie Kelly.  “We hope that seniors will not only come to the center to use this service, but it will draw attention to the many services our senior centers provide for the community.”
