The wait is 3 or more hours every time you go and they don't tell you they aren't taking more clients until you've been there an hour or more because it would be past five by the time they get to you at 1:45 pm.

You have a man inside that sounds like a Army
Sargent shouting at everyone. I did not like that. He needs to respect people,or find another job, DMV needs a place for people to sit. They.stand in the rain to get their license. .this is in the Albemarle N.C. office

I was unable to make an appointment or get a place in line, online. Went to office anyway since I had the day off. Scanned the QR code to get my place in line and was told to sit in my car until texted. I sat in my car for almost 2 hours and then sat in the lobby for almost 2 more hours. The clerk was very business oriented but could have showed some empathy for the amount of time everyone had to wait. That was on 4/10/24. I have yet to receive my license in the mail.
I must say that previous visits to this office in Siler City, NC would have been rated a 4 or more.
This was my second time in one month because I ended up having to fix something on my side. Couldn't make an appointment because my license was expiring. Each time from start to finish took approximately 2 hours, which I expected. Once inside the door, the process went very smoothly, the employees were extremely helpful and provided a very high level of customer service, especially Quatiya Clifton. You know it was special when I made a note of her name. This location was across town from where I live but I read the reviews and this one had the best. I highly recommend!
