Don’t Fall for an Imitation: Deal with the Real Virginia DMV Online Unauthorized Websites Charge for Services Offered at dmvNOW.com
RICHMOND – There is only one place to access Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) products and services securely, conveniently, and without extra processing fees: www.dmvNOW.com. All others are third-party pretenders. “DMV is aware of sites like dmv.org that pop up during internet searches and try to pull in customers who may think they are dealing directly with DMV,” says DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. “Unlike these unauthorized sites, the real DMV would never charge extra for simply performing a transaction. In fact, some of our products and services, like decal renewals, come at a discount when you conduct your business at dmvNOW.com.” More than 40 transactions can be performed at www.dmvNOW.com, a convenient shortcut address that directs people to the official DMV website, www.dmv.virginia.gov. DMV urges customers to make sure “virginia.gov” appears in the address bar before they proceed with a transaction. Additionally, the official Virginia DMV’s website home page has “Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles” and “DMV Now” in the top left banner. Websites not affiliated with Virginia DMV usually have disclaimers on their home pages indicating they are not affiliated with official government sites. “We have worked hard to build a mobile-friendly website that offers security and quality customer service,” added Commissioner Holcomb. “It troubles me that these third-party sites would use our good name to offer an inferior experience. Customers at dmvNOW.com can expect timely service, official DMV products, and top-of-the-line security, which the pretenders can’t promise.” Millions of customers who use DMV’s official website also enjoy advantages like the myDMV account, which provides a dashboard-style interface unique to each customer, electronic renewal notifications via text or email, free study guides, interactive traffic safety data, and much more.

KNOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Classes are set to begin at Cordia in two weeks. As of now, no teachers, staff, or even a principal are assigned to the school.
These crucial elements are the responsibility of the Knott County Board of Education. Since progress has not been made preparing the school for the upcoming school year, officials representing both sides met in Franklin County Circuit Court.
The restraining order granted to officials from Lotts Creek Community School was supposed to keep Cordia's doors open and the school fully staffed. One member of the board of education says they will have their hands full filling these jobs.
