For years, many have dreaded the three letters DMV. Why? You ask, the long lines, crowded building, time spent, at the DMV for what seems like an eternity to complete a change of address, license renewal, or vehicle registration to name a few.
Not to mention there is a form for every single transaction, that have many drivers walk away with best penmanship award. Most of us put off our DMV visits until the very last moments or schedule a day off because we know the grueling details of what is to come. We bring along our favorite book, earplugs, and let us not forget our favorite snack.
The State of California DMV have long tried to figure out how they could become more efficient and maximize the taxpayers time while at the DMV. The DMV recognizes that there is no time like the present. Time is a gift.
Most of us drivers do not want to spend an entire day in the DMV to take care of related matters. We would much rather be on the beach spending time with our families. An innovative approach is in place to assist drivers with some registration renewal process.
