Got my license renewed today. Went to the Office in Jacksonville. I was very surprise how easy and smooth it went.
This morning I got a text reminding me of my appointment. It advised when you arrive type "here" as a return message to them.
I arrived about 10 minutes early and typed in the above response, thinking I will be sitting the the car for sometime.
I received a response in about two minutes. It basically said come on in. Inside they have a guard who asked if you have an appointment and a few covid 19 related questions. I was directed to a window where they asked to see the letter received from the Dept. Of Agriculture.
After showing that about 30 seconds latter a lady comes through a door and tells me to come with her. I am seated at a computer and told to type in my personal info. and Credit card info..
Then I was taken to a location where my picture was taken and the new license printed.
This entire procedure took about 15 minutes, maybe less.

I have a Connecticut permit to carry and you have only one choice to renew by mail no in person renewals. Takes about 8-10 weeks to get your renewal returned.

Glad to hear it is so quick for you hopefully it stays that way.

A couple of questions...

1) When did you receive your initial letter from DOACS? Supposedly, it should be sent 100 days prior to renewal date. When did you get yours? I'm worried about some rumors that some letters may be delayed to a very short time before expiration.

2) Was this appointment at a DOACS "Regional office" or at your local Tax collector's office?

I got the letter late March, original expiration date was in late June. Went on line to make appointment, it was about a month out to the first available appointment available.
The appointment was at a regional office. The Tax collectors office is maybe 5 miles closer. There are no convenience fees at the regional office.
It did not state that they would take CC at Regional office so I took my check book. When I asked they advise they could take a CC and that there was no additional cost for using a card.

Thanks much. My 100 day clock starts in Early July.

My wife never got the letter. Drivers license office didn't care. Appointment in two days, in and out in ten. In the middle of COVID lockdowns.

Hey Jeff:

Am I missing something, or did your wife (tell her I said howdy, I think the last time I saw y’all was at one of Brownie’s courses several years ago) renew her CWL at the DL. office?

Thanks,

Rick
