A report by the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission issued Tuesday found 866,000 customers went to the DMV is fiscal 2014 for services that could have been done online, over the phone or by mail.
According to the report, nearly all of those people who went to the DMV were for vehicle registration renewals.
