OSWEGO - Oswego County Clerk Michael C. Backus is encouraging local residents to save time and money by using one of the three local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices for their motor vehicle transactions.Residents can renew their registration at DMVs in Pulaski, Oswego and Fulton. Vehicle renewals can be mailed to the Oswego Motor Vehicle Office at 384 E. River Road, Oswego, 13126.
Backus notes that all motorcycle registrations expire April 30.
"When people mail their DMV renewals to the Oswego office,a portion of the fees collected by the DMV remains in Oswego County and helps hold the line on local property taxes," said Backus.
Backus said it's important for local residents to know that if they mail their registration renewal to the Oswego DMV office, they must cover or cross out the postal bar code that is pre-printed on the DMV envelope.
"The envelopes that the DMV sends with the vehicle renewals are pre-printed with the Utica address bar code," he explained. "If the bar code isn't covered or crossed out, the letter will be delivered to Utica, even if it has an Oswego address on it."
Oswego County DMV offices are open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and are located at 384 E. River Road, Oswego; 200 N. Second St., Fulton; and 2 Broad St., Pulaski. For information call 349-8300; 591-9136; or 298-6521.
