While the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may not be known for excellent customer service, some states perform better than others. To help compare, DMV.com has completed its National DMV Satisfaction Survey to analyze the quality of customer service at the DMV. The data, which compares customer satisfaction levels across the U.S.A., was collected over a 10-month time period. The best and worst performing states are outlined in the map below:

As a response to decreased customer satisfaction with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), DMV.com has conducted a study to examine DMV wait times. The study, which was conducted over an 8-month period, was designed to highlight the differences in service quality across states. The results are compiled by state, and are illustrated in the graphical-map below. The study revealed that the average American will wait 44 minutes before receiving service at the DMV, while the average wait time for a given state is 34 minutes.
State laws and regulations play a major role when it comes to the adoption of electric cars in the U.S. In order to help bring electric cars to the mainstream, various states offer incentives to encourage drivers to purchase alternative-fuel vehicles.
