|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE||July 9, 2013|
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the newest self-service “DMV in a Box” kiosk in Las Vegas are set for tomorrow, Wednesday, July 10. The BuyLow Market at 1061 W. Owens Ave., near Martin Luther King Blvd., will bring much-needed DMV services to the West Las Vegas area.
The ceremony at 11:30 a.m. will feature Nevada State Senator Kelvin Atkinson, Senator Patricia Spearman, Assemblyman Tyrone Thompson, Las Vegas Councilman Ricki Barlow, DMV Director Troy Dillard and other officials.
“BuyLow is thrilled to be able to add a new convenience for our customers,” said Gus Carrillo, BuyLow store director. “We have a Hispanic customer base. Offering them services in Spanish and alternatives to DMV office visits is important to us.”
“This is a great example of the state's effort to bring our services closer to the people," said State Senator Kelvin Atkinson.
"It's exciting to see the kiosk established in the historic West Las Vegas community," said Assemblyman Tyrone Thompson. "The access and convenience are key factors that will greatly benefit residents."
“The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle continues to demonstrate its willingness to provide much needed services to inner-city residents through the rollout of their new kiosk," said Las Vegas Councilman Ricki Barlow.
"Our kiosks have been widely accepted as a great way to conduct your DMV business right in your neighborhood," said DMV Director Troy Dillard. "We are now looking to expand kiosk services to include other governmental business."
DMV touch-screen kiosks can process a registration renewal, print out a driver history record, order a duplicate driver’s license, instruction permit or ID card, or reinstate a suspended vehicle registration. They offer services and audio assistance in both English and Spanish. Kiosks are located at all southern Nevada DMV offices and in 20 supermarkets and other private locations.

DMV customers completed more than 540,000 transactions at kiosks during fiscal year 2012, which ended June 30th. These are customers who otherwise would have waited in line to be served by a technician. The total number of transactions completed by the DMV website, kiosk and other alternate technology topped 1.4 million in that same period.
