    The security guard here is really nice. Looks out for elderly people, those with appointments, and those retaking the written test who are waiting on the wrong line

    Peices of shit! My appointment Time was @ 8:45 they called me and left me a voicemail to confirm. The next thing I know I show up at 8:35 only to get denied, my appointment time 👎👎👎

    The wait was about 20 minutes at 4pm on a weekday (no appointment). Not bad.

    America is great at many many things but is home of the world's worst motor vehicle authority. Horribly disorganised and heavily understaffed.

    Don't bother making an appointment they don't care if you have one. Also people are rude and useless I'm glad my taxes are paying their checks
