If you can think of some of the worst places to spend a few hours, for most people, the DMV would be near the top of their list. Unfortunately, nearly all of us have to spend some time there at one point or another. To make your experience a little better, here are a few tips for going to the DMV.
- Make sure you need to actually go. Many DMV-related activities don’t require a trip to the DMV. Check to see if what you need to do can be done online or through the mail.
- Be prepared. Check online to make sure you have all the necessary paperwork required. That could include your current driver’s license, birth certificate, car title, bill of sale, proof of address, etc.
- Go during downtime. Check online or call to see when would be the ideal time to visit. The middle of the week is usually the slowest.
- Expect the worst. Even with the best of plans, you could still end up with a long wait. Don’t plan for a short trip. And, make sure you eat before you go and bring something to keep you occupied.
