    I like the "by appointment" DMV/RMV/BMV thing. Greatly reduces the long wait times at those places. Still had to wait, but it wasn't all that long.

    The local Dr's office here had a "wait in your car; we'll text you" feature too. Didn't have to sit in a crowded waiting room with a dozen people... some of whom might be asymptomatic carriers, some of whom might have been there because they were feeling ill (i.e. infected). Or, I could be asymptomatic and infecting others (How would you know?).

    I could have mailed it in but I forgot the renewal notice came and it was too late.

    Florida, too. And you can register for one or two years. I haven't been into a BMV/DMV office in 30 years.

    The DMV here in Arizona, although they are not without stain, is one of the best that I've ever dealt with.
    Last week I knew my registration was coming due so I stopped and got my emissions test, then by the time I had gotten a home the info had been transferred up to the central office, and I did everything else online. 3 days later I had my little sticker.

    Here in a week or two I'm going to renew my driver's license all online as well, since I have a recent photo due to a recent move, I don't even have to go into the office.

    We haven't had those stickers in 11 years, it's all electronic now. Even before then they just automagically appeared in the mail box.

    I think BMV pain is when someone breaks off part of your BMW emblem.
