A Quick Stop at the D.C. DMV
By Deborah Rogers
I was apprehensive about going to the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles' Brentwood Service Center last week, as I'd heard a lot of things about horrible experiences at DMV offices in the District. As a Virginia resident, I've encountered long wait times at my own state's DMV offices, but the process has greatly improved from years past. However, my son, a recent graduate of Howard University, still resides in the District, and he needed a temporary-resident parking permit.
Much to my surprise, it was just 30 minutes from the time we entered the building to the time we exited with parking permit in hand. Mind you, I did my prep work by browsing the DMV Web site to make sure I had the required documents, which is the key to a successful visit. The Brentwood DMV staff was courteous, knowledgeable and expeditious in carrying out its tasks.
The only setback was that one clerk proudly wore a Dallas Cowboys T-shirt. I guess you can't have everything.
