If you own a car or have a driver’s license, you are going to have to go to the DMV at some point in your life. While this can be a dreaded task, there are a few things you can do to make going to the DMV more bearable. Here are a few tips.
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.
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.
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.
