HONOLULU (AP) – In Texas, it’s all about the appointment.
The new line of appointment-tracking drivers licenses is available to drivers who signed up for it by Aug. 6.
If they want to fill out the application and then wait to see their license until Aug. 28, they’re free to do so.
The idea is to give those drivers a chance to get an appointment with their license, but they need to meet certain criteria before they can get the appointment, which includes passing the DMV exam, passing an interview and passing an alcohol screening.
The DMV will accept all of those tests, and the agency says the drivers license line is designed to be a quick and easy way for those who have a long wait for a license to get their license.
The company that runs the line, Harris-Merrill, is trying to attract more people to the system.
Its new website says the company has 1,200 licenses to be filled by Aug 22, but the actual date is unknown.
The new line will be staffed by a driver, but its the company’s own human resource department that is supposed to be staffing the line.
That’s a big change from past systems, which used to employ a handful of drivers.
“We want to have as many of our employees as possible, so that we can do our best to make sure that we’re able to accommodate all of our customers,” said Jennifer Johnson, vice president of Harris-McMillan’s driver services division.
Harris-Mérill said the company will continue to work with local governments to help them with traffic issues, including congestion, parking, traffic signals and the like.
The first of the new drivers licenses will be available for those with pending licenses, which is a requirement for getting a license.
The company will issue 1,000 new licenses to people who have been issued a license for the past 90 days, which will allow the company to offer them to those who haven’t been issued one.
The licenses will come with a license plate that says “D.M.V.” and a personalized license plate.
Harris says its not yet clear how many people will be using the new lines.
The lines will be operated by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, and will cost $35 for a nonresident license, $35.50 for a resident license, and $45 for a driver license.
