The Department of Motor Vehicles will return to Carson Valley on Tuesday in the form of a self-service “dmv in a Box” kiosk at the Gardnerville Scolari's Food and drug store.

A ribbon cutting will be 9:30 a.m. to christen the kiosk. A second kiosk is being set up in Sparks.

The kiosks can be used to renew vehicle registrations, print out driver history records and reinstate registrations suspended because of an insurance lapse.
“Carson Valley and Smith Valley residents have had to travel to Carson City to do business with the department since budget cuts forced the closure of our Minden office in June of 2009,” DMV Director Bruce Breslow said. “The addition of these kiosks not only brings some services back to these communities, it makes those services available beyond business hours.”

Scolari's Chief Executive Officer Joey Scolari said the kiosks will provide a welcome amenity to the stores.

“We are very excited to provide our customers with this time saving convenience,” he said. “Now our customers can do their shopping and take care of DMV business at one location.”

Brelow said making the kiosks self-funding will make them a common sight in Nevada neighborhood stores.

“The Gardnerville and Sparks kiosks are just one more step in our plan to bring the DMV into neighborhoods, employment centers and campuses across Nevada,” Breslow said. “With the Legislature's help in making our kiosk program self-funded, ‘DMV in a Box' could become as commonplace as bank ATM machines. Also, if the Legislature approves self-funding, we will be able to add many other services like driver license renewals.”
