Stands for D.C. , Maryland, and Virginia area. Mostly used by radio commentators.

Another word for the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Another way to describe it is to note where the D.C. Metro train takes it riders. (any area outside that MAP is not considered the DMV area.)

a term used to refer to DC, Maryland, Virginia as a unit. Origin is disputable - but started being used widely circa 2009 in radio spots, gogo music (Wale, Mambo Sauce) and for party promotion. The masses embrace the term, while many NATIVE and TRUE Washingtonians resent it.

Department Of Motor Vehicles, AKA- the deep pits of hell, supposedly created to help you. It causes 95% of public violence in the USA and is responsible for over 300 suicides.
"They should have a man in the DMV punch you in the face the second you walk in to ease the pain of waiting in line at this sick twisted place."

A level of hell derived from "The Divine Comedy" also reffered to as "Dante's Inferno", in this level, people are forced to stand in line for un-holy amounts of time, in order to get the simplest of tasks done. After standing in one line, they will be re-directed to another line and told "they are in the wrong line" after waiting 9 hours.
for raping and killing nearly 100 little boys, the poor man was sent to the 9.5th level of hell....the DMV...poor soul...

DMV is known nationwide as "The Department Of Motor Vehicles" where you get your tags, licence, ID, and other legal documents with your state.

In the DC Metro Area, it is slang term for the DC metro area. It is a term that has been recognized as far back as 2004 when local R&B and Hip Hop stations "WKYS 93.9" and "WPGC 95.5" started advertising themselves as radio stations that play the biggest hits in the DC area. As the time has passed by (and thanks to Wale), it has become a widely known term for the DC metro area. There have been local international calling cards that also bore the name "DMV" as far back as 2000, but never were able to popularize the name for the DC metro area like the way the radio stations did. It is not a popular term in the actual "DMV" area as many people prefer to represent their areas of DC which are: PG, NoVA, Route 1/The Highway (Richmond Highway portion), Chirilagua/Arlandria, South Arlington, and many smaller communities.
Non Local: "I hear you are from the DMV"
DC Local: "Nahh fool, I'm from the Highway"
Non Local: "What part of the DMV is that?"
DC Local: "I just told you!" "The Highway." "You know?" "Richmond Highway." "Sacramento Square." "You're slacking!"

Then of course DMV is self explanatory, unless you live in Maryland, which they call that government department the MVA.

A nickname for the Washington Metropolitan Area.

If you don't live in the following areas:

Washington DC, Prince George's County MD, Montgomery County MD, Alexandria VA, Arlington County VA, Fairfax County VA, then YOU ARE NOT from the DMV.

On a good day, a Waldorf (Charles County MD) native MIGHT be able to get away with saying they're from the DMV.

Living in Virginia or Maryland alone DOES NOT make you a DMV native. I don't know who needs to hear this, but Baltimore and Richmond ARE NOT in the DMV.

The easiest rule of thumb in determining if you're in the DMV is simple: If WMATA operates there. Buses AND Trains.
A: Yo where you from?
B: I'm from the DMV, born and raised.
A: Oh word? My dad's from Capitol Heights.
B: Kiiill. 😂😂😂 I grew up in Seat Pleasant.
