Ahh yes, the Department of Motor Vehicles.  No matter what state you live in, it’s not a fun place.  And is it just me or no matter what time you go — even first thing in the morning — it’s always busy and at least a couple of hours of waiting time? 

So when I noticed that my drivers licence was expiring, I was dreading having to go to the DMV.  But then, I realized that I could renew online

And as a DC resident, they offer vehicle inspection appointment scheduling, vehicle registration renewal, request residential parking permit, road test appointment scheduling, and payment for parking/moving tickets.  For more online services, click here for more information. 

OK, so I’m easily entertained.  But this just saved me a half a day on Saturday!

And for those of you who live in Virginia, same.  Lots of services offered online including drivers license renewal.  Maryland folks, not as lucky but a few services are offered.
