DMV Update: NYS DMV has notified us of some changes in processing of DMV transactions.

  • The Governor is allowing online driver's license renewals with a 12 month vision test deferral. Please remember if you are re...newing or upgrading to a real or enhanced license you must make an appointment to come into our office.
  • The Governor extended car registrations and non driving ID's until Nov. 3rd. After this date there will be NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS. You can renew online (which lowers our retention) or use our drop box, or mail the renewal to Ulster County Clerk's Office, 244 Fair Street, Kingston 12401.
