NC Drivers License… Are you SURE you know how to drive?

I got my NC drivers license today. They happily took my Alabama one which had my boat endorsement on it, so now if I want to drive a boat I have to go get a boat license. Good thing there is no lakes around here and I don’t own a boat.

I was surprised to find out that in NC, you must take a written test in order to get your license, as well as visually identify signs by their shapes. Now, I would understand if you were renewing after age 1million, or if you were like 16, but I am almost 30 years old transferring a license from another state. I guess it helps eliminate the morons who somehow got lucky and passed their initial driving test, but what a waste of my time.

All in all, the DMV moves pretty efficiently here, after acquiring the proper forms of ID (hint: don’t laminate your social security card, like it says on the back), I was in and out in about 45 minutes. I was told not to come on a Friday, or in exact words, “Goto the mall, goto the beach, just don’t come here…” Apparently that is their busy day. I find that after 9AM or just after lunch seems to be a decent time to show up. The best part? They print your drivers license on the spot. No waiting longer than the 4-6 weeks for your sea monkeys to show up for your ID card, they just hand it to you. Comb your hair fool, otherwise end up with hat-hair.

Anyways, long story short, Im now a legal driver in the state of NC. (not that I wasn’t before, but now I have an NC drivers license).
