    Everyone believes you should get here in the morning... Not true! Get here in the morning and wait with a million other people who thought the same. Get here in the afternoon and get in and out. ;0)

    Don't even think about going without an appointment. Also, where other than in California do you need proof of citizenship to get a license?!

    Blair Goldberg · November 11, 2010
  • Vanessa R.

    Keep in mind, they don't want to deal with you either. Have a good attitude. Bring the RIGHT DOCUMENTS AND SMILE. Your license depends on it! Can you imagine having to work HERE?! OMG!

    Make an appointment and your experience will significantly improve. I recommend early morning appointment. Took me 20 minutes to receive new ID with photo.

    It's not always fastest at the very beginning of the day. A big line starts up before the doors open. Try a weekday if you can.

    Definitely make an appointment 2 weeks in advance. Cuts your wait time about in half.
