Many forms are available in different languages.
All the forms on the DC DMV website are offered in PDF format. In order to download these forms to print from your home computer, you'll need Adobe's free Reader software.
Here's a sample of the types of forms you can find on the DC DMV website:

- Application for a Certificate of Title (Form DMV-CTA-001): Submit this when you first purchase a vehicle.
- Application for Disability Parking Placard or Tags: You and your physician must fill out this form for you to get special parking privileges due to a disability. These forms are also available in English, French, Spanish and Amharic.
