Thread: The DMV

  1. #1

    Default The DMV

    I've been thinking lately about the DMV, and how high their rates must be for suicide or alcoholism or smoking. I mean, come on, you've been there. It's like being in hell.

    So what I wonder here is, do any of you folks work there, or have a friend who does?

    What's it like?

    Does it pay well?

    How do you stay sane?

    Why would you ever want such a job?

    Do you enjoy dealing with grouchy people constantly?

    This is a case I'd like to solve.

    our DMV is split into three offices one on second floor that deals with licencing
    and 2 offices in basement one is testing, and the other is registration.

    the pay is around $15/hr full benifits (401k, pension, health vision and dental insurance, and access to city workers employee credit union)

    this with it split into 3 offices traffic flow through each office is low

    our DMV wont deal with angry people if you go off the handle and start yelling all service is revoked and your asked to leave or escorted out by sheriffs department

    Coincidentally, this subject came up in IRC briefly today. I don't spend a lot of time hanging around the DMV, but it seems to me that it's run more efficiently than it was at one time. No one is particularly thrilled to be there, but I've gotten in and out in a reasonable amount of time without much hassle. I'm sure there are more rewarding jobs out there (financially and personally), but it's something that needs doing.

    The best time to go is in the middle of the week near closing time. I agree that they seem to be more efficient these days, though I'm pretty sure the computerized number system is flawed. As long as people bring in all of the proper paperwork there should be no reason for them to get angry. The last few experiences I've had weren't bad and the workers seemed nice, though I'm polite and understand they have protocols to the jobs they do. The bright lights and noise start to wear me out after a while though

    When I got my license I was actually the first person in line and the last person out at the end of the day. I found that so hard to believe - that the DMV's inefficiency really lived up to the hype.

    Obviously it can't be quite that bad for everybody. But my two experiences with the DMV have been very drawn out.

    I hate waiting in line at the DMV, but fortunately in Virginia, we can do licenses and plates on line. Our new plate sticker comes to us each year through the mail.

    Personally I'm pleased I don't have to visit the newzealand equal to the DMV for a long time as I passed my full license yesterday.

    yalls DMV need to adopt new practices. our DMV will (for permit testing) have you in, tested, permit printed, and out in 30 min. driver testing takes 1 hour. and registration can be done usually in 10 min, 15 on a slow day.

    17 and a half is the early you can get it here. I failed the written test twice which didn't help. In my defense I'm the only person I know to pass both driving tests with 100 percent (most people don't pass either test above 95%)

    once again. WOW you have strict driving laws. here depending on state its a writen permit test at either 15 1/2 ,or 16 (varys from state to state)then a driving skills test is taken 6 months later if passed you now have a Class D licence. (which Class D is the Basic unrestricted licence that 80% of people hold) i have both Class D licence and Class M (motorcylcle) i also hold a current Class B instruction permit with school bus and passenger endorsements. which enables my to drive a heavy duty Non-Combination vehical 26000lbs or more with a licenced class B driver in the vehical. the endorsments allow me to carry more than 16 passengers including driver as well as driving for school children ages 3-18.
