Complete piece of shit?

Went to renew a car registration.  Fill in the boxes with the appropriate info, click Submit and get some BS about how it can't be done and to click on HELP.

THERE IS NO FUCKING HELP!!!!!  

Damn I hate incompetence.

A few years ago with the "DMV now" site I requested an account online and got a temp password in a day or so and was set up.  This past year my daughter had to get an appointment and register her car after she could not get the website to work.  I went with her to DMV and the rep gave her a sheet with a temporary password.  He said you now have to come into DMV in person to set up an online account.  David

Virginia's DMV typifies just how completely screwed up government is in Virginia now.  This state F'ing sucks since the marxists have taken it over.

I saw on Channel 6 the other morning that the DMV is going to remain open, appointment only, from now on.  Thats right... you will have to make an appointment months in advance for anything DMV related.  Thanks Ralph.

It took them many many years to transition from every license plate in the state expiring on the same day.
The entire state.

The lines at DMV used to be epic every spring.

And the plates switched every year from black letters on white, to white letters on black.

So every vehicle needed a new plate every year.

The dumbs have really screwed up a lot of things.

You have a bunch of state employees that have no idea how to specify what they want in a web site.

Many fed sites have problems also.

It is all done by contractors.
And government almost always picks the lowest bid.

I have seen web sites developed by 12 year olds that are better than government sites.

Oh, you've got to be kidding me....  Made appointment months out for kid to get a learner's permit.  Wife discovered at DMV that even though she had to prove everything for Real ID, that wasn't good enough to prove anything for kid and so needed to produce all the paperwork proving citizenship, residency, etc.  Apparently the one they were shy was the residency one because of course driver's license is only one form of proof and could be old.  DMV workers of course did not care and kid was returned to the online waiting for an appointment which was granted about 3 months from the original.  Now I'm going to have to go through this again for the full driver's license?  Oh, and to top it all off, still had to wait about 45 minutes even with an appointment to get to a window.

On the plus side, at least you don't have provide nearly the level of documentation to vote any more

At least you got logged it. It always locks me out, I've been pulling a title from the safe each time I renew one lately.

Wait until you pay the "Highway Use Fee" that's added onto the registration cost.

Any GOPer running for office this fall should make a huge issue of mismanagement of the DMV.

I was one select DMV and they were getting 25% no shows and didn’t have a way to add people if the slot was open.  Sucks that you have to plan 5 weeks out for DMV transactions.

The wonderful VA General Assembly voted to change the law regarding registration and inspections.  You can't be stopped until either are expired by four months.  You know, because of equity.

I bought a camper in April and made an appt with the DMV that day. The appt was 50 days from the time I requested it.

Printed and filled out the required paperwork, got to the DMV, and had to wait about 15 minutes to get to the window, only to be faced with a clerk that was a point or two above retard level IQ. It took her 20 minutes to register my camper.
