      Va. DMV launches mobile app

      RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is going mobile.

      The state agency recently launched a mobile application that allows customers to access DMV services, locate the closest DMV office and their average wait times.

      Officials say the app gives users access to more than two dozen DMV transactions, including renewing decals and driver's licenses.

      Users also can design and purchase license plates. Sample driving exams also are available.

      The app also includes news and alerts from the department. It is currently available for Android phones, but a similar application is being developed for the iPhone and iPad.
