    Fastest dmv experience ever! I got there 20 mins early on a week day, and the line to get in was not long at all. The employees were also friendly and helpful. In and out within about 30mins.

    You know in the True Blood faerie world - how what feels like 2 hours there, surrounded by beautiful fae-people, is actually days and days in the real world? This is the EXACT opposite of that.

    Bring a pen! I borrowed one from the counter. The staffs are nice enough to lend me a pen, but what if they are out of pens by lending them to other people? Also, bring a fully charged phone.

    If you need to go to the DMV, this is the one to go to. Go in the AM and wait on the line to get in first.

    Under-utilized, which is good because there's rarely a long wait for almost anything at the DMV. Friendly folks too.

    This location was well-organized a couple years ago, with benches and an electronic queuing system. Now, it's a mess of disorganized roped-off lines.

    Don't bother reading instructions before you come. Whoever sees you will change the rules depending on the day, weather, or mood. Bring your first born child and the kitchen sink.

    This place can learn from nj. Terrible. Standing in 2 lines for almost 1.5 hours. Switching license from nj to ny. Nj privatized theirs, not sure if that's why this place is a nightmare compared.

    Since you're at the DMV, try waiting in line, or on the sturdy wood benches! It's a great group activity everyone can enjoy!

    Clean, quiet and organized – things that are missing from the midtown locations. Definitely worth the out of the way trip to avoid the crowds.

    Bring a book, or sketchpad or anything you can to keep occupied while you wait in line. Then remember to fill out your paperwork that comes in the mail next year so you don't have to come back her.
