Albany New York DMV Reviews and Tips

Default profile picture
The staff were pretty helpful at this place. It was a short wait and I already knew where to find it because I have been there before. Parking was decent and things were spread out so no one was really close to each other. They truly did take covid procedures into account and I was glad that they did. Overall, it went quickly and I'd go back whenever I have too.

Parking is always a hassle. I would make an online appointment before you head down.
