Ours opens at 9 and I went at 8:30 and was still maybe 15th in line. Good luck to you. Maybe there is someone to keep the baby for a while in the early AM.

Oh boy..... you have raised a flag for me. My daughter is schedule to go get her permit in Plano. She gets out of school at 4:15 and lucky to get to the car by 4:20 and the TXDL office 10 minutes away closes at 5.

They are only open Mon-Fri here 8:30-5. Since I've ready your post...I might have to take her out early on Monday j ust so she can get her permit.

Sorry I am no help but thanks for the heads up....

Not sure which one you are going to but I would assume the Hurst location, I don't know if there is a good time, it just seems to be luck. You might want to try the Lake Worth location I have heard it's not as busy, but as a general rule don't go around lunch time or after school time they seem to be the generally busiest time of day. Good Luck!

I have no clue if this will help, but maybe try Googling it - "best time to renew license at <name of> facility" or even go to the DMV website. I went to the website for my DMV and they actually listed the slowest/best days/times to go.

Go to the Lake Worth location. It's not as busy. I always go there even though it's farther from me. But you do have to watch what time you go.

Around here, first thing when they open is the BEST time to go! No one is there (because they are all working). Good luck!
