Have you been dreading heading into the Department of Motor Vehicles, the wait time, the lines, and the appointments? Information still can seem a bit unclear as to whether or not you need an appointment at the DMV for transactions. Apparently there are instances where you can complete a transaction on a walk-in basis, but not at all the DMV's.

Which ones can you 'walk-in' and for what transactions? While you might wish to go ahead and make an appointment for your transaction, keep in mind that you still might have a bit of a wait, before you are seen. Let's take a look at the ones in Orange, Ulster and Dutchess Counties.
