MAYVILLE – Outside drop boxes were installed Tuesday at the Dunkirk and Mayville DMV offices, according to the Chautauqua County Clerk’s Office.
Officials say renewals may now be dropped off at any one of the DMV’s three offices 24 hours a day as well as mailing them to us if this is a preferred method. The DMV will accept registration renewals, plate surrenders, vehicle registrations for new purchases and plate transfers.
All automobile dealer work can now be left at any one of the DMV offices. The DMV, however, can’t renew driver’s licenses at this time as a personal visit is required. New York State extended the expiration date on driver’s licenses until further notice.
New York State DMV is currently closed and has been closed for several weeks. Any renewals done online will not be processed by them at this time. Make sure that all DMV work is mailed to a Chautauqua County DMV office or left in one of their drop boxes. You may call any of the DMV offices with questions. The DMV, however, has limited staff and many calls, so this may be difficult at this
Whether by mail or drop box, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope large enough to hold what you are requesting, and containing enough postage for your request as the DMV will mail your items to you, and include your phone number as the DMV will need to contact you for payment. Any forms that you need can be found on the NYS DMV website at
