Customers should note that the days before and after a holiday are especially busy, and they are encouraged to “go on-line” to complete their MVA transaction. Many MVA transactions can be completed via the Internet through the MVA’s eMVA initiative—including payments for vehicle registration. eMVA makes a variety of routine transactions available electronically and they can be completed from anywhere and at anytime without a need to visit an MVA office. To reach eMVA and the available electronic transactions twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, log on to www.mva.maryland.gov and click on “Online Services.” You will then have access to the following transactions:

-- Renew Registrations
-- Obtain Duplicate/Additional Registration Cards
-- Replace Titles
-- Change your Address
-- Obtain Driving Records
-- Obtain Temporary Registration
-- Purchase Background Scene License Plates
-- Purchase Personalized Plates
-- Purchase County Pride Stickers
-- Download & Print Specific Forms
-- Get Information on Administrative Flag Fees
-- Extension of your Vehicle Emission Inspection Program (VEIP) Test Date

Customers can also complete transactions via the MVA Interactive Voice Response Phone System by calling 1-888-834-7344. This system can handle the renewal of a vehicle registration and the payment of an Administrative Flag Fee.

MVA wants to encourage customers to use these alternate methods to complete their MVA transactions from the comfort of their home or office and not visit an MVA office unless it is absolutely necessary.

For additional information, please log on to the website or call the MVA’s customer Service Center at 1-800-950-1MVA (1682).
