After living in Mexico for a few years, it was an expiring US drivers license that prompted me to get a Mexican one. All it took was one day.
It was much easier to get a license in Mexico, mostly because the facility was pretty much empty.
Have you ever seen the DMV look like this??? Not in California, that’s for sure. After filling out paperwork, exams, payment, etc., we were off to the second location to actually get the license.
It was a newer facility and equally in need of customers as the first office.
And here I am with drivers license in hand.
