I wanted to share some information that I just learned the past two days. First is that once your drivers licence has expired you only have 90 days to renew it, not 5 months. Second, your licence is then no longer valid, neither is the driving or written test you took when you were 16. Third you have to pay $40 to retake the tests and sit in the DMV for half your day to try to accomplish the task of taking just the written test, which has questions on it that require much thinking and consideration, because who really knows how far your headlights are supposed shine?? 350' on high beam and 100 or 200' on low beam. Really-you just turn them on and they work great. It then becomes lunch time, so you are given a Learners Permit and told to come back tomorrow for the driving test. You are also told that you should have a licenced driver with you at all times.
Another important piece of information is that when you register you vehicle, it is smart to put the little sticker on your licence plate when you get it. When you take in your proof of registration and insurance to the DMV lady she will inform you that it should have been on your vehicle last October, not this October when it expires. Another piece of info is to have a nice DMV lady(which seldom happens) remind you durring your driving test that you should drive with 2 hands on the wheel, not 1 like you have done since you completed you last drivers test almost 20 years ago. The final thing that you need to know from this experience is that you can renew you licence 6 months BEFORE it expires.
And so the adventure begins
