WTF… After being on hold with the TX DPS  for 19 minutes, they just hung up on me. Thanks, it’s not like dealing with you is a huge waste of time anyway.
I had to renew my TX drivers license again in June because my temporary visitor status expired, even though it really didn’t, because I can legally stay in the US as I’m a student. That was 39 days ago, my temporary license expires in 6 days, and I still haven’t received my new license.
Looks like I’ll have to make a ninth trip to the DPS in less than two years.
Now they’re so busy, they can’t even take my call and put me on hold. It really looks like I have to go to the DPS office again. Vomit.
I received the following email:
Thank you for giving the Department the opportunity to respond to your email inquiry.
Your visitor status has been updated. A request for a new license has been submitted and will be mailed to the address you provided. Allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery.
I guess I don’t have to go to the office, but I probably still am not allowed to drive with my temporary license once it expires…?
