About DMV Locations

In Utah, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is the state agency responsible for managing vehicle services such as registration, plates, and titles. It also handles taxes, fees, and impounded vehicles. The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) is responsible for issuing and renewing driver's licenses and state identification cards, as well as maintaining driver records under its Driver License Division. Both the DMV and DPS have locations throughout the state. The days and hours of operation may vary by location, so check with your local office before you visit.

You can register and title automobiles, off-road vehicles, boats, aircraft, and commercial vehicles at the DMV. The first time a vehicle is titled and registered in Utah, it must pass a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) inspection. To transfer a title, you will need to bring in a certificate of title and completed application for title. If the vehicle is leased, you will need the lessor's power of attorney, billing statement, and Utah sales tax number. In order to register the vehicle, it must also pass an inspection.

To get a new Utah driver's license, you will need to visit a Driver License Office. You must bring a completed application and either proof of a driver's education course or a valid license from another state. If you lack either, you will have to hold a learner's permit for 90 days and complete an online exam. You will also need to provide proof of your identity, Social Security number, and residency. You must pass the vision test, complete a medical questionnaire, pay the fee, and take the written and driving tests, if required. Teen drivers can apply for a learner's permit at age 15 if they meet the requirements and have parental consent. If you have held a learner's permit for at least six months and you are between the ages of 16 and 20, you can apply for a Provisional Class D driver's license.
