Do you actually need to go?

There may be a few tasks that do not require a physical trip. Check online or call to see if you can mail in your paperwork.

Get organized

Make sure you have all the required paperwork for your task. Depending on what you are doing, that could include your birth certificate, proof of address, vehicle title, etc.

Go during downtime

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays are usually the busiest times at the DMV. Aim for the middle of the week and see if there is a less popular branch that could speed up your visit even more.

Stay occupied

Bring along a book or your headphones so you can listen to music or a podcast while you wait. Or you could simply enjoy the peace and quiet and do some people watching.
