HARRISBURG – PennDOT is reminding its customers to exercise caution while renewing their driver’s license or vehicle registration online, and to make sure they’re on PennDOT’s official Driver and Vehicle Services website – dmv.pa.gov – for making transactions. PennDOT says they will never ask for, nor accept, any identity documents over the internet or over text messages for any reason. Any website or text claiming to provide similar services are not affiliated with PennDOT. Additionally, third-party websites can appear “official,” and often pay search engines to appear at the top of search results for search terms, like “renew vehicle registration” or “driver’s license.” Many third-party sites charge additional fees for completing transactions. There are no service or convenience fees for completing online transactions on PennDOT’s website.
