 Erie County Auto Bureau

At the Erie County Auto Bureau, our primary goal is to provide you, our customers, with the finest service possible.  In order for you to have the best experience at one of our Auto Bureaus, it is very important you are READY with all your documentation and forms before you come in. Please use the DMV Document guide to help you GET READY and to make a RESERVATION at one of our offices and to RENEW locally to keep your hard working tax dollars in your WNY community. 

ATTENTION: Due to continued technical issues with the NYS DMV, ALL Auto Bureau offices are NOT able to provide CDL testing today- Monday, October 14th. However, we can assist those looking to only do standard license permits. We apologize for any inconvenience.
