County Clerk



Pre-booked appointments are open to residents of Allegany, Cattaraugus, Steuben, Wyoming, and Livingston counties ONLY.

Effective Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the Allegany County Department of Motor Vehicles will open its doors to “Walk-In Appointments” in addition to the existing appointment system. Walk-in appointments will be available to Allegany County residents ONLY.

However, individuals with pre-booked appointments will be prioritized over those with walk-in appointments. We always suggest that visitors schedule an appointment at Appointment slots are typically available within two days or less.

Individuals showing up for walk-in appointments will sign in upon arrival with a DMV employee, who will assist with general questions and start filtering them into the service queue. Walk-ins will be asked to wait outside in their vehicles until they receive a text message from a DMV employee stating that a service window has become available.

No walk-in appointments will be given after 3:45 PM. There is no guarantee that walk-in transactions will be processed that day, as pre-booked appointments take precedence.

A drop box will also be available outside the DMV. Please feel free to call the Allegany County DMV with questions or concerns at (585) 268-9267.


Green Light appointments must be made in-person every first and third Thursday of the month between the hours of 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM.


We are experiencing a high volume of calls right now, so we thank you for your patience when calling. If there is no answer, you may wish to call the NYS DMV help hotline for questions at 1-800-698-2931 or visit
