Damn DPS

I have been waiting on my new drivers license. My LTC came pretty fast, but I figured that they do more ID’s and licenses.

Final I send them an e-mail asking about it. They informed me it was sent to my old address. WTF they think I put a change of address in for? Their reason being it was the address linked to my old email address!

I have an appointment with them Monday morning because I couldn’t get it sorted out online. Seeing as I’m going in & they are going to charge me more money I figure they can shoot a new picture and I dug out my birth certificate. So I can get gold star.

You may need more than birth certificate.
Here's a rant thread where it's covered.

I did an online address change on our DLs about a 1 1/2 weeks ago. I still have access to my old mailbox so we'll see where ours show up.

DPS needs some sorting out to do. Had the same experience, but it was for a car registration that was sent to an old address.

They did waived the penalties and fines.

That does remind me. I paid off the wife's car in April 2020 and never received title. The financial institution had sent me mail stating they had notified the state and I later called them to confirm. I assume TXDMV sent it to my old address which no longer forwarded mail since it had been past 1 year. I had to send in various info to TXDMV, VTR-34 form, pay a few dollars and wait 2 months before they finally sent me a certified copy from Wichita Falls. Luckily I had kept the letter from the financial institution since that too was required documentation.

Have you seen people who work at DPS? Wrong addresses should be sorted out by computer, what's the term? Shit in shit out, something to that affect.

Agreed, smart people don't have any desire to work for the government. So it leaves the other kind. The "I want $15/hr" kind, whether they deserve it or not.
I saw a guy at the DMV who we fired from our company years ago for utter incompetence and lewd behavior. He is the smartest employee of the month at the DMV office. *facepalm*

Well that actually went pretty well! Don't get there earlier then 30 before scheduled! Sign in waited about 3 minutes one on one in an office. Nice lady, dig my upgrade to a gold star license & renewed. Hope I live another 10 years to get my money out of it!
What all info did they require?
