The DMV said iPhone users will now have DMV information and services at their fingertips with a new DMV iPhone app called DMVNow.
The agency said it created an app that will let iPhone owners find a local office with the actual wait time and provide turn-by-turn directions based on the GPS location of the iPhone, take sample written driving tests, access a large library of DMV driver's education videos and access other important DMV alerts.
DMV said the process of building the DMVNow iPhone app took 90 days from inception to approval from Apple. The DMV is the first state agency to build an app in-house while keeping costs to a minimum, the agency said in a news release.
DMVNow is free at the Apple App Store.
