This was the situation on Wednesday, March 18, at the Georgetown branch of the DC DMV. Usually, this is the most efficient of the DMV branch offices, and it happens to be close to my office. All I needed to do was renew my registration. I’d procrastinated beyond the point where I could renew online, and given that I was heading to Utah for the Easter weekend and my registration expired the following Monday, I figured renewing it before leaving town was the best option.
So I meandered down to the DMV for my lunch break.
A break that took almost three hours.
It didn’t help that the one person processing registration renewals (there are 12 window locations at this DMV branch, and most were moving folks through at a decent clip) took 30 minute breaks between each customer.
30 minute breaks. I shit you not.
Needless to say, it’s done. Whew!
