Out of the Blue

Well, we survived our adventure to the DMV, with just a few speed bumps along the way. The reason we were doing this at the office rather than online is because besides changing our address, we were getting "enhanced" licenses. Starting next year standard New York State licenses will no longer be sufficient identification to board an airplane, so this required a visit to present additional IDs. We started out going to one of the bigger nearby offices, but despite its size and the number of people waiting, they only had three windows open. We sat next to a fellow who was looking for the same thing as us who had been there for three hours, so we bailed and made our way back to the smaller office nearer our home. While we were waiting I realize we didn't have our required birth certificates, so I drove home to get them and still got back before our number came up. There were a few additional complications along the way, and at one point MrsBlue blew (blue?) her top, but we worked it out in the end. I don't understand why New York State is not just changing its licensing procedure to match the new federal guidelines, but it's a relief to know our new IDs will overcome this.

Here in Florida those Enhanced licenses have been in effect for at least about eight years, because back in 2011 when I had to renew my license I had to bring several documents to the DMV and get my Enhanced license. With the usual eight year expiration period that should mean that pretty much everyone should have one now, as I don't believe there are allowed exceptions, although I could be wrong. It's not a big deal, or wasn't for us, our local DMV is set up pretty well and except for the occasional grumpy clerk it functions pretty well.
