Access Official PennDOT Website for Services

question_mark

PennDOT  provides comprehensive online services, like vehicle and driver’s license renewal, address changes, and it’s important that customers ensure that they are on PennDOT’s official site before completing a transaction.

Third-party websites can appear "official," and often pay search engines to appear at the top of search results for common terms, like "renew vehicle registration" or "driver’s license." Many third-party sites charge additional fees for completing transactions – there are no additional service or convenience fees for completing online transactions on PennDOT’s website.

There are a few simple tips to help customers ensure that they are visiting PennDOT’s official website:

  • Do not use a search engine to reach the PennDOT Driver and Vehicle Services website. Instead, enter the web address (www.dmv.pa.gov) directly into your browser’s address bar.
  • Remember - PennDOT does not charge any additional service or transaction fees for completing online transactions. If you are charged any additional fees, you aren’t on the PennDOT website.
  • Look for the words “An Official Pennsylvania Government Website” in the top left corner. Many commonwealth websites display these words as an additional security measure.
