Anchorage DMV Announcement

The Benson DMV is moving to the University Center Mall in August! We will be located in the southern portion of the mall with plenty of parking and a comfortable waiting environment. Appointment slots for the new location will be available in July. Until then, you may make an appointment for our Airport or Benson locations.


Appointments are required for an in-person DMV visit.

The DMV's operations have been augmented to comply with COVID-19 social distancing recommendations and you must have an appointment to visit us in person. Most DMV transactions, including driver's license renewals/duplicates and vehicle registration renewals/duplicates, can be done online!

DMV is offering pandemic-safe motorcycle and non-commercial road tests in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Soldotna and Palmer. You can schedule your road test here!

Most business partners are open and ready to serve you today!
