Do these dolts have a game? [censored] Got a letter. I need to renew my license. It said to bring money,take a pic and eye test. Take a day off work. Wait hrs in line only to be told they need a birth cert. No where on the paper they eend did they mention this. Drive 30min home,get birth cert,30 min back to dmv. Wait in line.

Get back up to the counter and the same idiot dolt now wants a power bill! Spent 10 hrs doing this today.

Lol that's a good one.

This is an agency where when one counter person hands papers to another the first staples them and the second person removes the staple.

I bought my sister a car from an out of state dealer. I looked at Texas DMV's requirements for out-of-state paperwork and at the time they just wrote "it's complicated so call us."

WTH? Just spend 10 minutes to type out a paragraph so people can come in prepared.

I believe that you must pass an illiteracy test to be employed there


If you think you can, or if you think you can't, You are probably right.

I think it's part of some national program called Real ID for US citizens and resident aliens. In Maryland one has to provide multiple documents in order to get a driver's license. Birth Certificate, Passport, Utility Bills sent via USPS, other mailings delivered by USPS, etc. One has to provide something from a couple of different categories in order to prove that you are who you claim to be.

However, they'll hand out ID cards and non-"Real ID" driver's licenses to "undocumented" persons with minimal "proof of identity".

Remember, you are in California. How much do you have to pay for the privilege of getting the runaround?

I got my driver's license renewed last week. Waited in line at Desk #1 while the lady at the desk dealt with complicated problems from the people in line ahead of me and told them that they were not following the DMV rules. Pretty sure they already know that. They are at DMV to get things straightened out properly. Finally, the armed security guard employed by a security company came over and asked if anyone was there for license renewal. He handed out the forms to us told us to go to Desk #2 when we were done. Then he helped out some folks trying to get their new address on their license. And took care of everyone in line. He was way more helpful than the actual employees. Frustrated people cause problems. Much better to keep everyone happy and moving along than to cause frustration and people getting unhinged.

I brought a power bill and bank statement because the DMV webpage said I needed proof of address. The lady at Desk #2 threw it back at me and told me she didn't need it. The ladies at Desk #3 and Desk #4 were very nice, quick, and professional.

I renewed both my wife's and my driver's licenses online last year. Just paid the renewal fee with a credit card and they mailed the new licenses directly to me within a week. Sorry you even had to go to the DMV to get this done. Seems antiquated.

Thatís about the same here in WA state. $54 for standard license. $78 for the enhanced one. Good for six years.

In MA, I can renew every other time on line. Renewing registrations is a snap. Here's a clue, bring a book, some eats and comfortable shoes if you have to show up. Just like court. grin2

Ask them how someone from Mexico gets one,,,they start studdering ....yes in Tennesse you have to give several months of utility bills,but to renew after that,,do it on line

If your 16, you have to show you have good grades to qualify, your parents have to bring their bills to show you live there to,,a birth certificate and such,,amen.

Or you can check online and see how long the line is. If you have to get plates, no way to do it online.
