Reviews of Washington State Department of Licensing Locations and Hours

All of my experiences with the DMV have been negative UNTIL I visited the Puyallup, WA DMV on River Road. An employee named "Enough" was very helpful, gave advice to every customer on what paperwork to fill out, how to save money by completing by what deadlines, etc. She was fast, professional, and seemed to like her job: the opposite of every DMV stereotype!!!
