I can’t believe we had to get a new driver’s license again. It was only seven months ago when we got our Texas license. I wrote about the craziness of that in the post, All I Wanted Was My Texas Driver’s License.
I went to the Department of Motor Vehicle to get the paper work for transferring a driver’s license and to register my car. I asked what proof they needed and got all of it over the weekend. This time because I had national car insurance they just transferred it to NY and gave me new proof of insurance. I didn’t have to get the car inspected until after the registration.
Tom and I went early but had to wait on a line. We got new pictures taken for our licenses, registered the car, signed up for voter registration all in one convenient location. All in all I can’t complain because from start to finish it only took an hour and a half. When I lived in Brooklyn, I went to the Brooklyn DMV and I stood on line for over three hours before I reached the front. By the time I left four and half hours of my life was gone never to be seen again.
Moving from one state to another is a hassle. Once you get things like change of address, gas hook-up, cable, driver’s license, etc. taken care of, you can then proceed forward without feeling like you have something hanging over your head.
We moved here a month ago and are now officially New Yorkers again. It’s been very exciting so far and I can’t wait for what lies ahead.
