It is inefficiency by design.
Last time I went there they had one lady working the desk--there were 5 other stations sitting vacant. We waited about 4 hours.Ridgetop said:People haven't seen anything yet here in Nevada. They're planning on reducing staff, cutting pay, pretty much removing the health care policies, etc. to cut state budget costs. I'm sure those DMV workers making 28,000 a year are going to be really helpful now (not that they necessarily were, but you might as well bring a sleeping bag and food in the near future).

A recording tells you not to divulge any personal information and just ask your question, but a lot of folks may not realize the reason why. If your call requires more information to be given, then they bump your call to someone in the DMV system. I do feel a little strange though, talking with an inmate who I know nothing about.
The driver's licenses are good until you turn 65. You're supposed to update them when you move to a new address but that's it.2cflyr said:wait- i thought your licenses in AZ were good for something crazy like 30 years?

But, every year we have to pay a registration fee, which could be several hundred dollars for new vehicles. Mine this year was something like $90 because my car is 7 years old. As part of that process you also have to have your car be tested for emissions, which is another $12. It's a scam. So from time to time I do have to call the DMV to ask about these things, and lately with 2 new drivers in the household I've had some questions.
