Friday the 13th at DMVL was licensee’s lucky day!

Last month, on Friday the 13th, with some trepidation, I visited the DMVL at their new Maui location to renew my driver’s license.

The experience turned out to be a very pleasant surprise: Every employee I encountered was courteous, patient, helpful and efficient, and I could sense their smiles beneath the masks.

While chatting with the woman who processed my paperwork, she mentioned that she loves to sing.

I do, too, and then we broke out in a spontaneous song, something I never expected to happen at a county office.

When I left the DMVL, temporary license in hand, I felt that, despite the inauspicious date and the ongoing pandemic, this was my lucky day.
