    I'm pretty sure registering an out of state leased car in the state of California is even worse than buying a house. Absolute insanity. Employees here are not helpful to boot.

    Seriously? Someone is a mayor, here? They're either a masochist or had one very unfortunate day of back-and-forths.

    DMV - West Hollywood = Tirei minha carteira de motorista lá (filial das estrelas) além de morar no artístico bairro * I got my Driver's License there (movi stars') . I lived on the West Hollywood too

    I came early on a Thursday (9 am) without an appointment and waited less than 15 minutes. This beats Van Nuys by far.

    This office handles Vehicle processing only. Don't even drive to this office, parking lot is a bitch & it won't be any spaces on the street either!

    Theron X · January 11, 2012

    Wow. Make an appointment! I got to skip the huge walk-in line! I was in and out in less than 10 minutes. Very impressive!

    Don't listen to most of these inpatient pricks. This dmv only handles registration but is almost always empty. I recommend everyone go here

    They have a new self serve terminal for renewal for your tags. Well you still need to get assistance but you don't have to wait for a window. " Now serving C215 on window 17"

    Be on the lookout for B-list celebrities here, they need to register their vehicles too. Last time I was here, so was Ron Jeremy!

    JD Stuntebeck · February 3, 2011

    Park in the Target parking garage bc there is always a line for the pkg lot. And MAKE SURE YOU SET AN APPT. You can do it the night before online. I was done in 30 mins.

  • Brandon S.

    Brandon Scott · December 7, 2010
  • Chendaddy

    If you go one street over, you can park for free on Poinsettia. But you need to use the lot if you are registering your car.

    Chendaddy · November 15, 2010

    Don't bother making an appointment. You'll still have to wait in a very long line

    There is a major lack of parking here. It took me 35 mins just to pull in the lot and another 20 mins to get a parking. Allow plenty of time for parking wether its in the lot or anywhere else.

    Kristen Lauren · August 3, 2010
  • Ron H.

    I made an appointment and there are still 60 people in line ahead of me. What the hell DMV?! They need to bring more services online.

    Next time your at the DMV, remember to bring a hammer to mash into your temple.

    Longest lines you have ever seen, MAKE AN APPOINTMENT! You will still have a good 2 hour wait.

  • Myles C.

    If it's approaching closing time (5pm) & you're waiting for your number to be called, DO NOT go outside to linger. Security will not let you back in after 5pm, even though you have a # - game over X-(
