iPhone users will now have DMV information and services at their fingertips with a new DMV iPhone application called “DMV Now.”

The California Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) created an application that will allow iPhone owners the ability to find a local office with the actual wait time and provide turn by turn directions based on the GPS location of the iPhone, take sample written driving tests, access a large library of DMV driver education videos and access other important DMV alerts.

The entire process of building the DMVNow iPhone application took only 90 days from inception to approval from the Apple Corporation and the DMV is the first state agency to build an application in-house keeping costs to a minimum.

DMVNow iPhone application is free to iPhone customers and is available at the Apple applications store.

“Since millions of people own iphones and other Apple wireless devices we thought this would be a great way to make DMV that much more convenient and accessible to customers,” said DMV Director George Valverde.  “More people are depending on their hand held mobile devices for information and we hope to build more DMV mobile applications in the future for other wireless device companies.”

With “Don’t Stand In Line, Go Online!” doing business with the DMV has never been easier. The DMV offers an array of services to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through its Web site (www.dmv.ca.gov), including online appointments for written and drive tests; vehicle registration and driver license renewals, selection of personalized license plates, changes of address and payment of fees via secure debit transactions.
