    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?!

    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!

    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.
