Ulster County clerk’s office closes DMV and recording counter to public

KINGSTON – Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack has closed the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Recording and Filing counter to the public for health and safety reasons.

The closure is in effect until further notice.

Drop-boxes will be available at the Ulster County Office Building, 244 Fair Street, Kingston, on the backside of the building, facing the parking lot.

The Department of Motor Vehicles will have a drop-box outside the back-door County Office Building for plate surrenders and registration renewals.  License renewals will also be accepted in the drop-box, but a Vision Test Report must be attached.  For other transactions or frequently asked questions, please visit the New York State DMV website at https://dmv.ny.gov/.  

For land recordings and court filings, a drop-box will be located inside the back door of the County Office Building.  County Clerk public records can be searched online at https://www.searchiqs.com/NYULS/Login.aspx.

When at all possible, residents are urged to complete their transactions online or mail routine transactions to the Ulster County Clerk’s Office, PO Box 1800, Kingston, NY 12402.  

“During this difficult time, we are trying to make the best decisions we can to maintain the welfare of our employees and the public,” said Postupack.  “We are taking the necessary steps to keep our services available in a socially responsible manner and encourage our residents to use online and mail options, as well as the drop-boxes.”
