Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)


Rensselaer County Clerk Frank J. Merola is informing county residents that the Rensselaer County DMV located in Troy will be closing for renovations effective Monday, October 2, 2023.  This closure is part of a multi stage renovation of the County offices located at 1600 Seventh Avenue in Troy.  The DMV is anticipated reopening for the public in early 2024.

“I have been pushing for renovation of the Troy DMV for the past five years.  Quite frankly, the Troy DMV has become outdated and this renovation will modernize the DMV which will allow us to update equipment and space usage, and to maximize our already excellent customer service.”

County residents will be able to access the second full service County DMV located at the County Office Building located at 99 Troy Road East Greenbush NY during renovations,  or the Hoosick Falls Satellite DMV located at the Murphy Senior center every Wednesday from 10:00 -2:00.  Residents are also encouraged to mail non-essential transactions to Rensselaer County DMV, 99 Troy Road East Greenbush, NY 12061 during this time.

“While I am sorry for any potential disruption caused by the Troy closure, the long-term benefits to residents far outweigh the short-term inconvenience.”  Mr. Merola said, “By modernizing and renovating this space, the Troy DMV will be coming back bigger and better than ever in 2024.”

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) provides original and renewal vehicle registrations, driver's licenses and learner permits. DMV is responsible for issuing conditional and restricted licenses of rental vehicles, livery, ambulances and buses. DMV provides non-drivers license identification cards as well as being a sponsor of the "Moto Voter" program.
