RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia motorists who have applied for a new or renewed handicap placard now have an easier way to track their order.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says that by signing up for a myDMV account at www.dmvNOW.com , customers can follow the production timeline for their placards.

The DMV says that 24 hours after applying for a placard at a DMV office or through the website, a customer can go online and see the delivery status.

Similar tracking of the production of drivers’ licenses and ID cards has been available since 2010. Last month, nearly 3,000 customers used the feature.
