Each state in the United States has a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) as a facility equivalent to a Japanese driver's license center.[1][2]..In addition to driving permits on public roads, DMVs also renew their driver's licenses after confirming their identities.[2]..However, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV, Vehicle Management Bureau) is not only a driver's license test business, but also an organization that also performs business such as vehicle registration (vehicle registration) and official identification of residents.[2].

Since there is no resident registration system in the United States, a car license is also an institution that performs various identification such as issuing ID cards and registering voters (for example, in the case of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, a California driver's license). And ID card), DMV has become a familiar administrative agency for residents[1][2].
