DMV sets up mobile office in Henrico

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles established a DMV 2 Go mobile customer service center in Henrico today to serve customers.

Two DMV locations in Henrico – the centers at 9237 Quioccasin Road and 5517 South Laburnum Avenue – are closed today because of the effects of Hurricane Irene.

A DMV 2 Go mobile customer service center is parked in front of the North Henrico DMV office at 9015 Brook Road. Services will be provided until 5 p.m. today.

The mobile office is handicapped-accessible and provides all DMV transactions including applying for and renewing driver's licenses and ID cards, ordering disabled parking placards or plates, and getting vehicle titles, license plates and decals. Virginians can stop in to update their addresses on their DMV records, their voter registration addresses and organ donor status.

To check on the status of DMV locations, visit for updates before visiting a DMV office or call 497-7100 for more information.

Patient First to offer free Halloween candy x-rays

Patient First will offer free digital X-ray imaging of Halloween candy at all neighborhood medical centers from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 29 through Oct. 31.

While an adult should always inspect candy before allowing a child to enjoy their trick-or-treating rewards, the free X-ray offer gives parents an additional precaution to consider and to provide peace of mind. X-rays may detect objects such as glass, metal or plastic; however, parents still need to provide supervision, since some foreign materials may not appear in x-rays. > Read more.
