These are very specific government agencies.  This may be a place where
regionally specific
tags work best.  Maybe pretty it up with a namespace.

  office=goverment
  admin_level=4
  office:type:california=DMV

  office=goverment
  admin_level=4
  office:type:massachusetts=RMV
  name=Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles


There's a whole set of assumptions about each type of goverment office that
would be impossible to
consistently capture with generic tags.  Here the "Duck" of duck typing
says call it by whatever it is known locally.
