PennDOT Customers Reminded to Use Caution When Renewing License, Registration Online

By Margaret Allen
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is reminding everyone to exercise caution while renewing driver's licenses or vehicle registrations online, to make sure you're on PennDOT's official website, www.dmv.pa.gov. PennDOT will never ask for, nor accept, any identity documents over the internet or over text messages for any reason. Any website or text message claiming to provide this service is not affiliated with PennDOT. Never submit any images of personal documents to a third party website as they will not be transmitted to PennDOT and could be used for fraudulent purposes. Additionally, these sites charge fees for completing transactions – there are no additional service or convenience fees for completing online transactions on PennDOT's website. Anyone with concerns should contact the PA Attorney General Bureau of Consumer Protection.
