Woeful inefficiency of Government - Colorado DMV
Well, the time came for me to renew my drivers license (end of Oct). Colorado has an online renewal process, wife used it (6 months early) and had been on me to get it done.
I typically am only on the computer in the early hours of the morning, where the Colorado Govt. system is down for maintenance, so it was not until mid Sept that I finally got mine done.
Their website states "Can take up to 30 days to receive your new ID or Drivers License". Well, I am getting anxious since I have not received it yet, so I got to looking around to see if there was a way to check the status. Under their "Help" section, it states under Delivery Time, that "It can take up to 30 Business days to receive your new ID or Drivers License" WTH!?! 6 weeks for a simple renewal with a digital photo they have on file?!?
Normally I would not stress it, but there is this sticky little requirement to have a Valid ID along with ones CCW permit. Insult to injury, I am flying to Las Vegas for a week vacation at the end of the month, hoping to enjoy my non-res carry permit I got last trip.
Murphy has a way of showing up when you are least prepared/most vulnerable....Hope my Passport will suffice as ID for the time being.
