I went to the Secretary of State Driver’s Facility place today to get my license renewed, the address changed, register to vote, and get the new stickers for our van’s license plates. I was in and out in 20 minutes!! It was amazing. I went in and got two numbers. One for my driver’s license and to register to vote and one for the license plate sticker. I didn’t even get a chance to sit down when my first number was called. I went up and got my driver’s license stuff taken care of and changed the address on it as well as registered to vote and then was sent down to a cashier to pay for those. After paying, I had my vision tested and then went to get my picture taken. Again, I gave my papers to the people doing pictures and then went over to sit down… whoops, my name is called. They were already ready for me. I got my picture done fairly quickly. As I was getting up from that, my other number was called to get in line for the license plate stickers. A lady checked the numbers and made sure we were all in order and checking to see if addresses needed changing on the vehicle registration. I had our new address written down and she took it and got the new vehicle registration papers ready while I was in line. Each person took about 2 minutes at the most to do what needed to be done and there were only a few people in front of me. When I got up to the counter, the one lady handed me the new papers as well as the sticker and I paid and left.
I think I spent no time waiting while sitting and at the most 6 minutes of standing in the quickly moving line. There were a good amount of people there. I like this place. They made the process so easy.
Of course, I went at 11 am. I wouldn’t want to go in the afternoon. I’m sure it is more crowded and there is some sitting and waiting time.
