Despite the failure, as detailed in the documentary "Startup.com,"
of govWorks.com to make paying parking tickets via the Net a dream
come true, real-world government agencies are working overtime
to make Internet services for motor vehicle registrations and
driver licenses a reality.

According to a report released Monday by Accenture, the
number of U.S. departments of motor vehicles (DMVs)
using the Net to offer services this year has nearly quadrupled from
last year. "The rhetoric regarding e-government is moving closer to
reality," Accenture managing partner Stephen Rohleder told the E-Commerce
Times. "You're seeing more states tackle these initiatives as the technology matures."

Last fall, I went online ready and relatively willing to renew my vehicle registration (in California). Then I found out about the fee the DMV was charging just to use the online service.

Sometimes, a 34-cent stamp is still the best bargain.

I must say that I liked using my state's online DMV service. I was able to order new personalized/log license plates online with few problems. I would strongly suggest people use their state's online DMV service (if available) if they don't have time to stand in line.

When considering an online-only dealer to purchase an automobile, which is most important to you?
30-day low price guarantee
Comprehensive and verifiable vehicle inspection policy
Extended warranty protection plan provided by the dealer
Full money back return policy with no questions asked for at least a week after delivery
The dealer has many outstanding reviews, and few or no complaints.
I would not consider buying a vehicle from an online-only dealer.
