NY motor vehicles website wins national award

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s Department of Motor Vehicles website has won a national award for its design, ease of use and scope of services.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the site, dmv.ny.gov, has won the 2015 Pinnacle Award from the National Association of Government Web Professionals.

It’s the second national accolade it has received this year.

Redesigned in February 2014, DMV’s website was named one of the nation’s best DMV websites earlier this year by DMV.com.

Customers completed more than 5.5 million transactions on the website last year. Use of the website has helped decrease average wait times in DMV offices statewide from 72 minutes in March 2013 to 30 minutes in September 2014.

If customers must make a trip to state-run DMV offices, they can visit dmv.ny.gov to make a reservation.
