Prepare for the long haul. 3 months... to the day. Alcohol... nope. Official government photo ID... nope. Call to see what's up... nope. Thanks California! In the state that I previously resided in, it took less than 5 minutes for the machine to print a license out. Even when accounting for the ratio of the two populations, it took California more than 4,000 times longer to produce a license. People consistently apply for and get an international photo ID, also known as a passport, in much less time than this. And to top it all off, the new "improved" licenses look and feel flimsy as can be. It has the structural integrity of about a phone card. I think I'm going to get one of those nice plastic baseball card holders for it so it doesn't break. --["Users/LeeDarb"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Department of Motor Vehicleshttp://daviswiki.org/Department_of_Motor_Vehicles2010-12-23 13:32:26CovertProfessor(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Department of Motor Vehicles<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 18: </td> <td> Line 18: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The Davis DMV recently implemented a much-need computer system for tracking waiting clients.

This is definitely a good week to go -- lots of spaces in the parking lot and not much waiting time. One oddity, though -- I had made an "appointment" online, and told the person so when I checked in. I was given a slip of paper with my number on it (like at a deli counter), and the slip said "Driver's License Renewal Appointment" (or something like that). But the person never actually checked to see if I had an appointment, or what time my appointment was, and it did not appear to me that I was seen an earlier than I would have been if I hadn't made an appointment. Now, as I said, I didn't wait all that long as it was, and maybe things would have been different if the DMV had been more crowded. But still, my "appointment" seemed very much like a non-appointment. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Department of Motor Vehicleshttp://daviswiki.org/Department_of_Motor_Vehicles2010-12-23 12:57:50SteveDavisonUpdated hours to current correct times <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Department of Motor Vehicles<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 4: </td> <td> Line 4: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[[Address(505 ["Pole Line Rd."])]] (Across from ["Post Office"])|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[[Address(505 ["Pole Line Rd."])]] (Across from <span>the </span>["Post Office"])|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 6: </td> <td> Line 6: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ||Normal operation:||<br> - ||Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 8am-5pm||<br> - ||Wed 9am-5pm||<br> - ||''Closed [http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/newsrel/newsrel09/2009-34.htm first three Fridays] of each month through June 2010''||<br> - ||''See [http://apps.dmv.ca.gov/fo/offices/appl/fo_data_read.jsp?foNumb=598 Davis DMV Office] for Saturday hours''||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||Mon &amp; Tue 8:00AM-5:00PM||<br> + ||Wed 9:00AM-5:00PM||<br> + ||Thu &amp; Fri 8:00AM-5:00PM||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 16: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ||[http://www.dmv.ca.gov]||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||[http://apps.dmv.ca.gov/fo/offices/appl/fo_data_read.jsp?foNumb=598]||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 20: </td> <td> Line 18: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The Davis DMV <span>has recently implemented a very</span>-<span>much-desir</span>ed computer system for tracking waiting clients.<span>&nbsp;</span> Before, all the windows dealt with every customer request, and when you'd go in, you'd just take a paper number from the wheel and sit and wait for HOURS until they call you.

When I moved here 2 years ago from out of state I passed the written test, but did not pass the vision test. Later I learned, by looking up the information at the CA DMV, that that vision test showed I actually did meet the minimum requirements, so I don't know why they failed me. I went to an optometrist to get the required examination and the doctor clearly wrote in a letter explaining my condition and that glasses would actually worsen my vision and acuity, and then the doctor further cited CA DMV vision requirements and stated that I more than met them. The lady I handed the form to would not grant me a CA license, refused to let me speak to another agent or supervisor, and would not explain why she was refusing to grant me a license. The DMV has a booklet of visual conditions and their policies regarding licensing requirements, but I guess this suddenly didn't apply? Finally she told me I would have to taken an HOUR LONG drive test to prove I could see well enough to drive. (For the record, I have 20/60 vision in one eye, but normal in the other. DMV requirements are that you see 20/40 or better in at least one eye or you need to wear glasses. So, not sure what her issue was!) I made the drive test appointment, but at the Woodland DMV. When I showed up with all the required paperwork they read it over, including the doctor's statement, and had a chat with the guy about why I was there. He checked with his supervisor, and they both told me that I did NOT need a driving test and granted me a CA license right away.

On my last visit I went to change my name on my driver's license as I had just gotten married. I had already been to the social security office and changed my name there without a problem. I had my original marriage certificate and after the first person looked at it and said okay here's a number and I waited for 53 minutes the next person told me that they wouldn't accept my ORIGINAL marriage certificate (from Montana) as the seal wasn't in the proper place. There was a seal and a signature but it was on the top half of the certificate not two inches lower (where she felt it should be!!). This occurred after they told me I needed a letter from Ford Credit saying that I could register my leased vehicle in California (since I leased it in Montana) and after I couldn't get my drivers license because of problems they had with my birth certificate. The workers are so slow and very very few are pleasant to be around. --["Users/jeesp"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Department of Motor Vehicleshttp://daviswiki.org/Department_of_Motor_Vehicles2009-08-12 01:26:28JoePomidorRevert to version 14 (ayup). <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Department of Motor Vehicles<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- deleted</span> </td> <td> <span>+ [[Image(DMV.jpg, 400, right, thumbnail)]]<br> + <br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> + ||505 ["Pole Line Rd."] (Across from ["Post Office"])||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Hours'''||<br> + ||Normal operation:||<br> + ||Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 8am-5pm||<br> + ||Wed 9am-5pm||<br> + ||''Closed [http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/newsrel/newsrel09/2009-34.htm first three Fridays] of each month through June 2010''||<br> + ||''See [http://www.dmv.ca.gov/fo/offices/appl/fo_data_read.jsp?foNumb=598 Davis DMV Office] for Saturday hours''||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Phone'''||<br> + ||(800) 777-0133||<br> + ||(800) 921-1117 Automated Voice-Recognition Appointment Scheduler||<br> + ||(530) 753-8324 fax||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Website'''||<br> + ||[http://www.dmv.ca.gov]||<br> + <br> + = =<br> + <br> + The Davis DMV has recently implemented a very-much-desired computer system for tracking waiting clients.

It was 39 minutes later when they called B 43. I swear they have the slowest workers too. I sat there as two of the agents chatted with each other for a few minutes before calling the next patrons.

Then you go to a triage-like window where they ask you what your business is, and then give you a printed-out number for the corresponding window.
