Department of Motor Vehicles Appointments 101

If you have an upcoming appointment with the department of motor vehicles in your
area, you might think it’s just a quick trip and you’ll be able to dash in and dash
out. However, most of the time, a trip to the DMV is a little more involved than
that. Usually, no matter where you live, the department of motor vehicles is a very
busy place with what seems like never enough clerks to wait on people. Below, you’ll
find some important information and tips to help you survive a trip to the DMV.

Paperwork – One of the most important things you can do is make sure you’ve got all
the paperwork you’ll need for your visit to the department of motor vehicles.
Depending upon what you’re there for, you may need proof of residency, name change
information, ticket or traffic violation papers, or a number of other things. It’s
important that you have everything with you when you come or you could risk losing
your place in line and being unable to get done what you visited the DMV for.

Eye Glasses – Something you might not normally think about bringing is your
eyeglasses. If you have glasses for reading and you’ll be taking a driving test,
you’ll need those eyeglasses to pass the eye exam. If you can’t pass the eye exam
with satisfactory results, you’ll have to come back to the department of motor
vehicles at another time to take a test.

Children – If you’ll be bringing your children with you to the department of motor
vehicles, you should probably bring a few things to keep them occupied. It can be a
long wait and it’s easy for children to become bored and grow restless. Pack a few
books, some coloring books, or handheld games that will keep them occupied as you
wait for your turn at the counter. You know your own children, so make sure to bring
things that they will enjoy and that will keep them out of mischief.

Once you’re prepared, your trip to the department of motor vehicles will be much
smoother and more easy to handle. Just remember to bring all the paperwork you’re
going to need, your eyeglasses (if you wear them) and things to keep your children
occupied. This will make the day go by a little faster, even if the clerks at the
DMV seem to be moving incredibly slowly!
