Sounds like this DMV system needs some serious re-work and upgrades for more convenience. Waiting 8 or even 2 hours for the residents should NOT be happening in the best leading country of the world. Ya'll feel me on this one?

Worse is leaving in an ambulance or police car, after waiting hours in line.

2 different elderly ladies passed out in line and had to leave in ambulances (incidents were about an hour apart).  One of them was in front of me.  She begged the medics not to take her away as she already spent so much time in line, but they took her.
1 lady just snapped and went crazy and had to leave in a police car.  She didn't even snap about anyone in line or even the DMV.  She just snapped and went crazy while in line.

I just came from the Laguna Hills DMV right now. Same as you, O.P. Needed to renew my DL. Could have renewed by mail / online. But decided to bite the bullet & go in for a federally compliant Real ID. In & out in 90 min. Walk-in. It was the shortest wait of the 3 closest locations.

Lol, no. one of the founding/original members, I think? vaguely remember someone saying so in an old search.
Do let us know how it goes, OP.

Yellow Fever (YF) was not a founding member/OG--that would be someone like IHO. YF was more like a one hit wonder.

Thanks for the info SoCal.  What kind documents did you end up bringing for proof of your id?  Just curious if there is alternative document besides the actual social security card if they can't find it  :o

We are all YellowFever. Now time for the updated version 3.0 of the Environmental Hazard spread sheet.

Looks like a W2/paystub with full SSN will do too. The checklist is at https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/wcm/connect/2db22455-e270-47a3-819c-d7c7716d5194/List_of_Docs_REALID.pdf?MOD=AJPERES&CVID=
