The Montana Department of Justice’s Division of Motor Vehicles (MVD) is where you’ll need to go to take care of just about all of your driving-related needs. You’ll be able to do that either by visiting an MVD office location or better yet, taking care of those needs online. Here’s an overview of what the Montana MVD provides.
Montana Online MVD Services
Let’s face it – the best trip to an MVD office is the one you don’t have to make. The Montana MVD has been upgrading its services over the past few years, and now many of the things you’d have to go to an MVD office to take care of can be done online. In fact, the MVD makes it easy by listing those services right on the MVD home page.
Montana MVD Appointments and Office Locations
The Montana MVD only allows appointments for drivers license and commercial drivers license testing. To make an appointment, simply visit the Montana MVD Appointment Scheduling page. If you do need to visit a Montana MVD Office, you have a couple of options. For Montana drivers license issuing and renewals, you can visit the Montana Driver Exam Stations page to find the location nearest you. For any vehicle title or registration needs, you can visit the Montana County Treasurer Motor Vehicle Offices page to find your local office.
Montana MVD Forms and Registration
To save time at the Montana MVD, it’s a good idea to have any forms you need already completed and with you. You’ll find a complete listing of downloadable forms on the Montana MVD homepage. Please note that you can only renew your Montana drivers license by mail or in-person, but you can get the forms online.
Your Montana Driving Record and the Montana Driving Points System
Montana drivers will accrue points if they are convicted of a moving violation. These vary depending on the nature of the ticket, but if you get enough of them your license may be suspended or revoked. It’s a good idea to know just exactly how many points are on your driving record. You can order a certified copy of your Montana driving record by visiting the Montana Driver History Records Service page. The state of Montana may allow you to complete a defensive driving course to dismiss a ticket. You can check with the court to see which courses are approved.
