San Jose California DMV Reviews and Tips

The location is near downtown with plenty of parking, near a neighborhood and school. There is a lot of traffic by here so plan accordingly because it is only a two lane, one way road. Other than that so long as you have an appointment, things will run smooth here. They are very efficient, reasonably courteous and good at their jobs. I go out of my way to actually go to this office even though it is further away from my house because of this.

staff was helpful, but not super friendly. parking sucks and you need to drive around constantly until something opens up. don't park on the street unless you know it's in an area that doesn't require a permit. meter maids will ticket your car fairly quickly.
