Alaska

The Division of Motor Vehicles Instruction Center

The Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles oversees driving services in 19 organized boroughs and 1 unorganized borough.

At your local Alaska DMV office, you can get items like drivers permitting & licensing, register or renew titles, request or maintain records, pay taxes, and more. You can access information when you arrive or grab copies and forms, filing them at your leisure.

DMVConnect is an easy way to navigate the Alaska DMV system without hassle (and having to take multiple trips in case you forgot something!).

We know going to an AK DMV can be a frustrating experience. Getting there is already a hassle let alone the potentially long wait times. Plus, let’s not forget the general unpleasantries we’ve all experienced when waiting in a noisy room just to find out you have the wrong form.

We did the work for you — compiling DMV info into easy-to-understand AK MVD guides.

Our driver guides and pages share Alaska DMV office locations, what to expect when going or using their systems, and how to complete different driving needs without it taking forever. It’s our goal, as our name implies, to connect you to the DMV in the simplest way possible.
