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.
Got in and out in 30mins with a 10AM appointment. Very clean location.
I was in and out in under 15 minutes. Make an appointment online
This was honestly a positive experience at the DMV. It can happen and it happened here.
Follow instruction and you'll be alright!
Very fast service. Made an appointment for my written test at 1:45pm and I was finished with everything at 2:10pm! #Winning
State govt needs to smarten up and move simple things online ,,it's 21st century!! Efficiency plz
Best dmv in NYC. The least crowded
If you go in the morning you will be out in 10 mins. or less.
A++ would stand in line again
A lot better than the other locations.
Make an appointment online to avoid waiting and say bye to all the felicias on your way out.
Surprisingly not packed...
Make an appointment for a weekday morning and fill out your application/paperwork ahead of time. I was in and out in 19 mins!
It's on 2 Washington street on the 5th floor.
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.
Booked a reservation at 9:45am, they called me up at 9:20am, and I'm already done by 9:35am. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE.
Pretty painless if you make an online reservation in advance.
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.
Make an appointment online the day before. In and out in under 15 minutes!

If you get here on a day when there's a winter storm warning, there's barely anyone here and service is very fast.
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.
They playing RNB music up I here, REALLL SEXXXY lol
NYS DMV is faster than Jersey less than 30 min... In and out (Manhattan office is efficient)
Immediately get in line!
In an out 11 minutes
Best waiting music out of any DMV, 60's funk
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.
Fast and efficient service!
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.
They playin big tunes in here tho!
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.
Wall plugs near the front door towards the info desk. Best cell signal here too even though cell phone use not allowed.
Try to avoid becoming mayor.
Note that for secondary forms of ID, they must all apparently include a middle initial if one of them does.
Faster than the one on Atlantic and more efficient than the one on Herald Sq
Exchanging out of state license? If you have all your docs ready, just jump into the poorly demarcates photo line.
Go online and have your papers ready
The Chinese guy at the front info desk is very good at his job. Every one else... Not as fast... If you have to go to the dmv, this is it
Poor Don... mayor if the DMV. I sure hope he is employed there...
Arriving early doesn't help much. 30 minutes before opening, the line is already 30 people deep.
No taking cell phone pictures. They mean it. Bring a newspaper and make friends
Prepare to wait for two hours even if you come early
Weekday Mornings here is where it's at. For non-driver ID- just grab a form & head straight to the Photo Line.
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.
