A fun trip to the DMV
Recently, I received a license renewal form from the State of Connecticut (my former state of residency) and I realized that I never went to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles to make the change. What was always a simple â€˜sign the form and send it in,â€™ was now a â€˜make a personal appearance at the DMV,â€™ in nearby Brewster, NY. I had to, after all, pose for a new photo, present my Social Security Card, and sign all the necessary forms.
Just 2 days before, I had flown to Maine and there was a window of opportunity between returning home and immediately packing my bags for an expedition to Iceland. I was informed that the computers at the DMV were down, so I escaped into nearby Katonah for a much-needed pedicure and manicure. When I arrived at the DMV at 3:30, the lines were empty and the service was fast and friendly. I was allowed to pay the $42.50 charge by credit card. They seized my old CT license â€“ for reasons, unexplained. My new license is good for 5 years because I am from another state â€“ another reason unexplained. I was told that after the 5 years, when I renew, it will be good for 8 years. Anyway, I was issued a temporary license until Albany, the capital of NY, sends me my permanent photo license in a week or two. Have you had a DMV experience lately? Let me know how it went..leave a comment!
Someone brought their 'babies' to the license renewal, I say...Cute Overload!
