County Clerks are also agents for the New York State Commissioner of Motor Vehicles. Cayuga County has a full service DMV office where our friendly and dedicated staff can quickly and efficiently serve you. We value and appreciate your business.

Local Office

We encourage you to use your local office because the County keeps 12.7% of every transaction done in our office, either in person or if you mail it to us (at 160 Genesee Street in Auburn, New York 13021). This helps to reduce your county tax levy.

Permits & Commercial Driver Licenses

Tests for permits and commercial driver licenses will be administered daily (Monday through Friday) * see hours of testing listed that are specific to business hours.
