I recently had to replace my driver's license.
I have a theory about how I lost it. But in any case, there's no one to blame but myself.
So what, you ask, does obtaining a new one involve? Lots of red tape, delays, wrangling, et cetera?
I went out to the state licensing office in Spokane Valley, paid $20, passed the simplest of eye exams, had my picture taken and was issued a temporary license. A couple of weeks later, my replacement license arrived in the mail.
Sometimes you hear people around here talk about dealing with agencies of government as if it is always a huge pain or some sort of assault on their personal liberty. But the truth is, it's not.
