San Clemente California DMV Reviews and Tips

I had to resolve an issue with the transfer of a title for a automobile that I had sold the year before. This was shortly after the covid re opening of the dmv offices. I knew that the DMV website has a notice saying that the dmv field offices were only taking appointments. They were able to talk to me and help me settle my issue . Even though the line I was in was long they came outside and talked to people to let them know what services they were offering. The people with appointments were helped very quickly. I was happy to get everything done quite quickly.

This DMV is much more organized than the ones I had to go to in the past. I didn't even mind the wait because it wasn't very long.

I had a wonderful experience at the San Clemente DMV this morning. The three employees who assisted me were all helpful and efficient. They smiled! I was expecting a long wait without an appointment but was in and out in 40 minutes. Great job and keep up the good work.

By comparison to the Laguna Hills DMV, the San Clemente DMV hands down is a far better experience. It was worth driving the extra miles. Well organized, nicer atmosphere, more pleasant personnel.
