It appears that the DMV is not sending out notices to remind us to renew our driver’s licenses any more.
Maybe the DMV is just cost cutting like everyone else in this economy. Maybe the State of California thinks we citizens ought to keep track of our own renewal dates; They did, after all, print our birthdays on the front of our licenses. Then again, maybe it’s a computer glitch?
We don’t know, and it doesn’t matter. What we do know is that the DMV is not warm and fuzzy in these situations, and DMV claims that the reminders are still going out.
Auto Pawn San Diego, however, has heard from friends, family and customers who had to tussle with the DMV because their driver’s licenses expired unexpectedly and inconveniently — all for want of a reminder notice they’d never received.
Whether the DMV has, or has not, ceased their courtesy reminders, Auto Pawn San Diego has this sage advice for our customers.
1. Check the expiration date on your driver’s license. Better now than in front of the traffic cop or the credit lender.
2. AND, if you need to make a DMV appointment for your renewal, make your appointment online. Actually, we enthusiastically suggest you go online to make any kind of DMV appointment … it’s very easy and so much less stressful than taking time off work to stand in line for an hour for a 5 minute appointment. Here’s the link.
Best of Luck!
Be safe. Be money wise.
