Just walked into this place and got a number. My heart rate and blood pressure are up. I haven't ran into any issues but I imagine this is how people who have been arrested feel when they walk into a police station.

I loath this place.

The worst DMV I have ever been to was New Jersey. Here in VA it is not too bad. Most everything you can do on line anymore.

Hang in there and for gods sakes don't get caught looking at FTF they will arrest you.

You are a stronger man than I am Yunus. I avoid the DMV and Post Office like a friggin Plague.

I even paid $5 extra to have my vehicle tabs sent to my house with the online renewal so I could AVOID merely having to stop by and pick them up. $5 was CHEAP in my opinion to giving up a half hour, or longer, of my precious time.... LOL

Good luck!

Another benefit of living in the middle of nowhere. I may have to drive for 10 minutes to get to one, but there is never a line and they don't even have the "take-a-number" system. When I was in Cleveland, we had to do emissions testing every 2 years. I would get it done early so I could do the mail option like JD does.

Take if for what it is, Yunus. That is some of the big government at work...

I haven’t been to the DMV for years; but I need to go soon. My car got rear ended a while back and the bumper was slightly damaged. Instead of fixing it the insurance company called it totaled and sent a check. Now I have to go to the DMV and get new plates if I want to keep driving it. It’s almost worth buying a new car just to not have to deal with the DMV and reregistering.

X 1000!

The last time I had to go to a police station was to renew my CCW. Walked into the records room to find a couple dozen people waiting there with numbers in hand.

Grabbed my number ## from the roll and and heard the only clerk there working a window call out "Number 2"!

About 5 minutes into my wait, another officer came up to a second window. Everybody in the room perked up a bit. Then she says "Anybody here just RENEWING their CCW?

Straight to the head of the line....

My favorite was when the DMV office in Memphis got centralized, then i had to go replace a stolen DL which happened to be the day the computers went down. It was impressive. Here in BFE, there isn't much of a line & they actually told me to look again last time i read the eye chart since i didn't notice the letters in the left viewfinder .

I made it out without issue. I had all the paperwork I needed which is a first.

Here in Texas you can get your vehicle registration taken care of at many grocery stores. At the worst, you go to the County Tax Office.

Drivers Licenses are handled by the PoPo (TX DPS). Most of the time you can simply renew on line, but right now they are making folks go in, show proof of citizenship, take new picture, new eye test, new thumb print etc. Resident aliens can get a DL but those on Visas will get a DL that expires when the Visa expires. My last trip to the DL office took about 2 hours. The time before, I knew the unifomed guys working in there and was escorted to the back room for my paperwork. In and out in about 10 minutes including BSing for 7.
