“Our administration is committed to providing the highest level of customer service from our state government,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “This convenient one-stop-shop service center will save time and increase efficiency for thousands of Marylanders.”

The Salisbury office provides customers access to services of both agencies including:

  • Vehicle and boat registration and titles,
  • Recreational hunting, fishing and crabbing licenses,
  • Commercial fishing licenses,
  • Off-road vehicle permits, and
  • Excise tax collections.

“The Department of Natural Resources is pleased to partner with the Motor Vehicle Administration to better serve residents on the Eastern Shore,” said Maryland Natural Resources Secretary Mark Belton. “Wicomico County is a hub for business, agriculture, and transportation—areas in which our two departments offer various license, title, transportation, and permit services. The ability to jointly provide access to our services under one roof greatly enhances our customers’ experience.”

“We are excited to give the residents of the Eastern Shore a convenient location to complete their Motor Vehicle Administration and Department of Natural Resources transactions,” said Deputy Transportation Secretary Jim Ports. “MDOT is committed to providing a one-stop shop experience where customers can address all their transportation needs in one centralized location.”

A combined service center also opened in Essex opened in May 2017. Both locations have processed more than 4,500 Department of Natural Resources transactions to date.
