    OT: DMV make an appt
    I had to renew my drivers license before it expires. So I made an appt last night, for 9:30am today.

    Walked into the DMV at 9:28 and got in line for appointments, got seen by someone at a desk at 9:30 and given a number.
    30seconds of sitting, and I was called to another desk, where I took an eye test and paid the $31 fee and told to stand in another line for a picture.

    2 minutes of standing there and photo was taken and I was out the door.

    at 9:40.

    there's a reason that the DMV has 500 signs up telling you to make an appointment.

    DMV... it's like low-grade jail time.

    It's also because it's 9:30 am .... again ... AM!

    The fastest I got in and out of DMV ... 15 mins, no appt. It just happened to be a slow day!

    I didn't know they had D/D on the license test, next time I go I'll be better prepared with a cold one in my cupholder. .:rolleyes:

    True, very true.

    Glad to hear that some people don't wait hours like it used to be in there. Last time I went in w/o appt. it took 45 min. I expected a longer wait.

    My wife tried to schedule an appointment this morning = "service not available"...

    Tried the phone; all the way through to confirmation of date & time = "system down"

    :(

    Hopefully will be back up & running in a day.

    If all you need is registration services, AAA is the way to go. Absolutely worth a AAA membership to not deal with the DMV.
