Driver Licensing and Car Registration

Driver Licensing Offices

You can use this link to find licensing offices that offer testing, car registration, license/ID distribution, and other important services. After you choose a city, you’ll find the contact information, address, and operating hours of each location along with other updates on service availability.

Wait times for walk-ins can be very long and some offices may currently be closed, so making an appointment at the office you want to visit is strongly encouraged. To schedule an appointment with a DOL office, you will need to provide:

  • The reason for your visit
  • The service you need
  • The location you will visit
  • Your appointment date and time
  • Your name, phone number, email address, and additional notes if you require accessibility accommodations including translation services


Here are some tips for visiting a DOL office and guidance for reaching out to DOL customer service if you require additional assistance.

Buying and Insuring Personal Vehicles

Buying a Vehicle

The link above takes you to the primer breakdown for finding and purchasing the right car. As long as you purchase a car from a dealership in Washington State, they can take care of transferring the title for you. You can even look for cars in different cities to see if you can find better or more affordable deals.

Links for buying cars in Snohomish County:


  • Find Local Car Dealers (Autotrader)
    • This site allows you to search for local dealerships based on their zip code. This is a great resource for researching the price and availability of cars. Some cars may not be listed, so you can call or visit a dealership to find out what they have available.



Tip: When buying cars online, be cautious about ones being sold by private sellers through things like Craigslist. There are fewer policies in place to guarantee the quality of the car.


Insuring a Vehicle

The link above takes you to the primer breakdown for car insurance and some agencies that provide it. Local insurance agencies sometimes work directly with specific insurance companies, but some provide the service of shopping for auto insurance for you. Searching for highly rated insurance companies in your area and asking for a quote is a great place to start. Remember: you must carry your proof of insurance with you while driving!

Community Transit

Vanpool programs can be very cost-effective for groups of people commuting to work in the same area. Starting a vanpool requires an application process, licensed driver, bookkeeper, and communication channels between riders to schedule rides. If you are interested in these programs, talk to your neighbors and others who are interested to learn about the program together!

Ferries and Water Taxis


There are a number of ferry routes that provide transportation across and throughout the Puget Sound. You can ride these ferries on foot or board with your vehicle if there is room. Vehicle space fills up fast, so it is recommended that you show up at least 20-30 minutes before your departure time. These operate on a first-come first-served basis, so boarding with your vehicle is not guaranteed. Space for pedestrians is nearly always available.
