Our Story

How it all started

Our founder Ryder Pearce spent nearly three months in 2016 dealing with the California DMV to solve a problem that should have taken him minutes. Multiple office visits, phone calls, web research and forms only made things more confusing and complex instead of simple and solvable.

While waiting in DMV lines he heard similar stories: People needing to renew their license, but couldn’t online; some who’d lost their ID and needed it for a court date and many others confused about the whole process, what paperwork to bring and were there just hoping to get some answers.

So Ryder launched YoGov -- a mission-driven company, with the goal of dramatically improving and increasing access to government services. From solving the DMV to improving the process of passports, visas, and trusted traveler programs, down to paying for city parking tickets and business licenses, YoGov's mission is to be your new relationship with government services.
