The County Clerk is the Records Management Officer for all the records in Broome County and is an agent to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The office is broken into three divisions:

1. County Clerk's Office: The Broome County Clerk’s Office oversees the processing, filing, scanning and storing of thousands of vital property, business and court documents every year. We oversee records dating back to 1806 including deeds, mortgages, judgments, liens, maps, civil and criminal actions. Our staff assists thousands of people each year with their filing and searching of these public documents.

Many of these documents are now available online at Here you can find land records dating back to 1946 and court documents going back to 1986.

2. The Department of Motor Vehicles:  The DMV provides original and renewal vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses and learner permits. The DMV is responsible for issuing conditional and restricted license and non-driver identification cards in accordance to New York State Federal Rules and Regulations.

Although appointments are still strongly encouraged, the Binghamton and Endicott DMVs are welcoming walk-in customers Monday - Friday from 8 AM - 3:15 PM.

  • All of our mobile DMV offices will continue operating by appointment only.
  • Appointments are still required at the Endicott DMV on Saturdays.
  • All in-house testing (permits and CDLs) is still being offered by appointment only.  

Please visit to book your appointment today!  Those without computer access should call (607) 778-6513 to schedule an appointment in Binghamton or (607) 754-2147 to schedule an appointment in Endicott.  If you leave a message, someone from the DMV will call you back within 72 hours.  The return call may be from a 518 area code.  

Surrendering License Plates:  If you are only turning in your license plates, you can either put them in any of our secure DMV drop boxes or you can visit any of our physical offices without an appointment.  Just leave them with the DMV clerk who's manning the front door.  Please don't forget the $1 plate surrender processing fee.  Cash is fine.  Your FS-6T receipt will be mailed to you.

When you process your transactions in our local DMV offices, Broome County retains 12.7% of the transaction revenue; when you mail your renewals to Albany or renew online, that money goes straight into Albany's bloated General Fund, over which there's no accountability or local control!

3. Records Management: The Records Management division is responsible for storing and maintaining County Records as well as overseeing the proper retention and destruction based on New York State Guidelines.
