I wouldn't know what to say about them. I work M-F 8 to 5. They're only open M-F 8 to 5. I can't get there to do anything. They aren't open even one evening or at all on Saturday. Guess that's what happens when you live in the land of prima donnas.


They don't give the motorcycle test equally to everyone. I have seen a dmv employee give a blonde girl multiple tries to pass and I put my foot down once and the employee was already picking up the cones behind me before I could even turn around. Basically if the dmv employee looks grumpy you are assured to fail.
