Being at a DMV isn’t anyone’s idea of a fun time by any conceivable stretch, what with the endless queues and general sense of tedium in everything. That may be about to change however, as the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has installed 72 kiosks all over the state.
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has spent a whopping sum of $80,000 on installing 72 iPad kiosks in 26 DMVs all around Tennessee. The idea behind the expenditure is to make it more convenient and quicker to get a new license issued, or to get a renewal, et al. The iPad kiosks are being called automatic self-service electronic terminals (ASSETs, in short), and will make life a lot easier for people on a schedule.
You can simply get your DMV form filled by tapping away at the onscreen iPad keyboard. Some of the basic tasks you can get done in a jiffy now include changing your official address, for instance. On getting done with that, you can proceed to a payment screen, and use your credit or debit card to complete the process. These ASSETs will let you get a new license in a matter of minutes, with minimal fuss.
“Reducing the wait time at driver service centers is one of our top priorities. These self-service iPad stations will cut down on the number of customers waiting for service from a driver license examiner and will help reduce the overall wait time for all customers.” – Commissioner Bill Gibbons.
