SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGTV) --The California DMV is warning people about websites reportedly charging customers to complete online transactions.

The department says it received reports of the websites charging customers a fee to complete driver’s license applications, DMV appointments and other online transactions.

Officials with the department say the DMV doesn’t charge additional fees to complete online applications. There is only one official DMV website in California. To see the website click here.

The California DMV has been riddled with controversy this year. First, after Californians learned that lawmakers have their own private DMV office in Sacramento, then by outages sweeping across the state.

Earlier in September, the DMV also reportedly botched thousands of voter registration forms just months before the midterms.
