Why Wait?

Where we live, trying to get anything done at the driving testing center is

Let me set the scene for you....

Line up at 6am at the door.

7am - You would think it was black Friday and they had $2 I Pads.... Everyone rushes in and tries to grab a number.

8am- They finally start calling people back. Line usually moves about the average 1 person every 10-15 minutes.

So you could be there for some time.  11am is the earliest I have ever been able to talk to someone there... Folks, that is like a 5 hour wait.  Then if you want to take your driving test?  Who knows if they will have any slots open that day. OH, and pray it doesn't start raining, because they do not test in the rain.(understandable) Or you could wait 5 hours to make an appointment to come back.... in 2 weeks.

Seriously, do you think I would make someone who is ready to get their license wait that long? You can not schedule the time... until they are eligible to set for the test.

SO- We got up and drove to my old stomping grounds....
Kobi did this....
We got to Enid and walked in the testing center a little after 9am.  Guess what?   There was NO BODY there!!! We walked up and she went and drove.

Yup - She passed with a 91! 
He said that was his first score in the 90's in about a month....

PS - If you have not entered for the SCENTSY GIVEAWAY - CLICK HERE - Now would be good.... before it's to late.

Jack could be yours :)
Entries are allowed until Midnight Aug 25.
I will announce a winner Friday!(maybe Saturday)

Holy cow! That's a long time to wait in line for a license!! As a new driver though, I'd wait all day and night just to get to drive... now that I've been driving for many many years, I could care less to go wait.
Cute pics!

Woo hoo! Glad it was an easy process for both of you!

I probably shouldn't have passed my driver's test on the first try, but I sure am glad I did. :)

Wow. That seems a little whack to me. Enid, Oklahoma? Are you another okie blogger? You see, I've been MIA for so long that I have forgotten so much. So sad.

Anyway, her score is awesome! She has super skinny legs. I want to trade her.

That is a cute scentsy!!!

YAY for passing the first time out! I also took my son to an "out of the way" place for his test. I thought it would be empty (it wasn't) but we didn't have to wait long and driving without all the hustle & bustle made him relax enough to pass his test. His friend, who'd tried three times at the local DMV finally went where I told him to and passed as well.

Nice! We actually have a friend who works at the DMV. I highly recommend that to anyone. I just call her and she moves me to the head of the line.

Oh my goodness, it's a good thing you knew of a better spot! Congrats to her :)
