No, it's OK, I worked out what you mean now. You were talking about a 2hr visit, rather than a 4hr one.

People make too much about the supposed slowness and inefficiencies of the DMV. For example, the last time I was there I was in and out in less than a week...

Well we've already discussed that one, haven't we. But the politicians and some of the public have no appetite for the solution. They would rather have the body count.

I renewed my DL last September. Made an appointment online beforehand. Was in and out in just over an hour. Those who didn't bother to make an appointment were probably there all day.

US states need to really work on the DMV offices and waits, I am so glad I don't have to deal with California DMV anymore.

I had to renew my BC license recently, took all of 15 mins, no appointment necessary.

Granted we don't have nearly as much to go to the proper office for as insurance agencies can do a lot of the things we need like getting our stickers renewed or getting new license plates and such, no need for a trip to the main office for such things.


96 days in a jail in Mississippi without seeing a judge. $250,000 in damages awarded by a jury.

But here we go again. It's old age. They wont let me renew by mail nor give me 5 years extension for clean driving record. I have to appear in person, take the vision test, the written test, mug shot and then I'm done. I did go to the head of a mile long queue when I arrived at the DMV however because I had the magic appointment doc in hand.

I was just being silly. In reality I'll probably completely forget to mail in the application and end up having to spend 2 hrs in the DMV on my birthday as punishment.
