Department of Motor Vehicles


Help us help you. Please bring in or mail your DMV Renewals to one of our two Franklin County Motor Vehicle offices. When the local office processes your registration or driver's license renewal, the County keeps 12.7% of the fee. This goes directly to the County's general fund which helps to reduce your County Tax Levy. 


This can be accomplished in several ways: 

  •  In person at the Malone or Saranac Lake office
  •  Send someone in with your completed renewal & fee
  •  By mail at the addresses listed below
