And remember, if you use our local DMV office, 12.7% of every transaction stays in the County. We appreciate you visiting our office and not conducting your business online.
Thank you for your business, and please share this information with your family and friends!
We appreciate everyone’s patience during this time and assure you that the remaining staff in the DMV is hard at work processing work for the public.
Sue Dwyer, Cayuga County Clerk
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.
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.
