Ours is the Virginia "Division of Motor Vehicles" or DMV. |
I went in today to get a title transferred from the previous owner to me, so I can buy license plates and get it registered.
There were three girls sitting behind an open window with a sign "Appointments". I took the old title over to the window, appropriately signed and filled out completely, along with my ID and a check already filled out; it's a 3 minute transaction.
They said "Do you have an appointment?" I said "No, didn't know I needed one."
"The next available appointment is November 23rd" they chorused. For a 3 minute transaction.
You can't do it by mail and there's no "drive in window". You're just supposed to wait a couple months.
I've bought insurance for the car, and I've gotten it MOT'ed. I'm going to drive it with invalid license plates 2 years out of date until this raving, hysterical stupidity is over.
Two other people I talked to later are doing the same thing - just running on invalid tags. I'll bet the cops don't say a word ....
What a whiney, stupid, insane world we've created for ourselves .... On the other hand, there's $100 I've saved for the next few months, so there's that ...
