Absolutely hate asking this question, apologies in advance...

Me and my girlfriend just moved down here. Thanks to an untimely ticket, she needs to get her license changed from New Jersey to Florida ASAP... I'm going to try and go with her, but with my work schedule, that may be impossible. She's 5'3 and skinny, not exactly the most intimidating force in the world... so I'm a tinge worried about her.

I'm less interested in the great, fancy DMVs and more worried about the DMVs to avoid. We live near the Lake Bueno Vista Suites on 536, but any DMV in orange county is fine.

Thanks.

Any DMV during daylight hours will be safe. Have her make an appointment online and make sure she has everything she needs to bring plus some, and she should be in and out in 20-25 minutes.

the one downtown is quick. Nice area as well. Make sure you go online ahead of time and step through the website to get all the required documents.

Go to the one downtown. No worries.

I've always waited for eons there, though. Make sure she has EVERYTHING she needs before she goes.

Depending on what she needs, she may be able to go to the DMV near costco near the intersection of OBT and Central FL parkway. Would be a little closer than going to downtown.

I agree, any DMV (actually called HSMV in Florida, not DMV) is going to be safe during the daytime. I also agree with making an appointment ahead of time, I did and was in and out in 10 minutes. I saw people without an appointment waiting for a long time.

When it comes to licensing your vehicle, I don't think the county tax collector makes appointments, but I have been in there numerous times and they are very efficient. You can also get your driver's license at the county tax collector, but I think there is an extra fee if you get your driver's license there instead of a state office. I got my driver's license in a state office, and my tags in a county office. All in all in Florida, I have been very impressed with the service at both the state and county motor vehicle agencies.
