Play associated audio

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Virginia officials are urging drivers to sign up for an online service to get reminders about renewing their vehicle registration.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says it sends out paper renewal notices to about 5.4 million Virginians every year at a cost of $2.4 million for printing and mailing.

The new service allows Virginians to sign up with myDMV to receive their renewal notices through e-mail or phone, rather than the mail. Officials say the service provides convenience for DMV customers and saves the state printing and postage costs.

Gov. Bob McDonnell announced the new service Friday.
