CT DMV Website Features

The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles is constantly changing and offering different options to its consumers. Learn about relatively new features at the DMV including options for vehicle and license registration, checking wait times online, and more.


We all know what it’s like to spend an entire, precious Saturday or Sunday running errands – getting an oil change, taking the dog to the vet, going grocery shopping, and of course, wasting hours at the dreaded CT DMV. Luckily, the Department of Motor Vehicles understands our plight. It has added new features to its website meant to save you time and keep your from getting too anxious in the waiting room. Learn about some of the DMV’s new features here.

New CT DMV Features

Vehicle and License Registration

The official CT DMV website now offers features that allow you to fill out information online, instead of wasting time at the DMV filling out paperwork. You can now fill out your vehicle registration form online. By printing this out before you get to the DMV, you can save time by getting in line immediately.

Even better, there is another feature that allows you to renew your license registration online, so long as you meet some requirements. For example, you can’t have a suspended license, any delinquent taxes, or outstanding parking tickets to register online. If you aren’t sure if you qualify, don’t worry. You will receive a renewal notice that will state if you are eligible for online renewal and give you a PIN number so that you can access the online registration.

Wait Time Log

In addition, the DMV website has added another helpful feature – a page showing the live wait time at each DMV branch in your area. This wait-time log shows how many people are in line at a CT DMV location, what they are in line for, and an estimation of how long the line will last.

With this feature, you can check the wait time at the branches near you in order to determine the best place to go to before you drive all the way to a particular location. In general, Wednesdays and Fridays are the slowest at the DMV, and Tuesdays and Saturdays are the busiest, but now you can gain more accurate information concerning the traffic at a specific time before going to the CT DMV.

Your time is precious. The DMV has recognized that and is trying to help save you some stress and time. Hopefully, with these new features, heading to the DMV will be an easy item to check off your to-do list.
