The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles maintains a convenient and easy to use website that is useful in many ways.

The site’s home page features a map of Connecticut with little icons showing towns where DMV offices and AAA offices are located. When one of the icons is clicked it opens another page which lists services offered and hours of operation for that location.

Just below the map is a banner which reads “Check Here For Wait Times in DMV Offices”. When the banner is clicked it opens to a page of text along with a small drop-down menu. The text on the page explains when the best times to visit DMV offices are and the drop-down menu lists all of the Connecticut DMV offices. When one of the offices is selected a new page opens which lists how long of a projected wait for services at that location will be.

A banner situated right below the wait times banner states that adult and teen learner’s permit tests can now be scheduled online. When the banner is clicked it opens to a page where appointments can be scheduled or rescheduled or appointment details can be viewed.

On the lower half of the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles website home page there is a section for the latest DMV news and a list of links that provide information and answers to questions about key services offered by the DMV. These include detailed driver’s license and ID and registration and title information as well as information about emission test centers, DMV inspections and fees, dealers and repairers and how to file a complaint against a motor vehicle repair shop or dealer.

There are links to information concerning disabled customers, military personnel and new residents and a listing of arrests by motor vehicle inspectors is also included.

Near the top of the Connecticut DMV website there are buttons for publications and forms and About Us and Contact Us sections. Below those buttons are other buttons that link to information pertaining to teens, seniors, commercial vehicles, online services and license suspension.
