Motor Vehicle Department

Department Responsibilities

This is probably the most familiar office in the county building. The DMV, a sub-department of the County Clerks Office, provides many and varied services including: learner’s permits, driving licenses, non-driver identification, registrations for motor vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, and RVs. Schuyler County’s DMV also offers escort testing and handles enforcement problems.


Office hours are 8:30 am to 4:15 pm with Permits, Enhanced, Real ID, and Conditional transactions being issued between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm. All services are provided by friendly and courteous clerks.

Methods of Renewal

I encourage you to renew your registration in our office, mail them here at:
 Schuyler County Dept. of Motor Vehicles
 105 Ninth St. Unit 8
 Watkins Glen, NY 14891

You may also use the drop-off box located to the right of the entrance. When you renew locally instead of mailing them to Albany, 12.7% of that renewal fee stays here in Schuyler County.
