The Department of Motor Vehicles office in Hillcrest, San Diego. On days when state budget cuts haven't closed the DMV, the line here starts before dawn and is around the building by the time it opens. Fortunately, the DMV has an excellent website where all forms are available and most simple transactions can be done efficiently and free on-line. You'll still have to go in to register a car or take a drive test though. BTW, the State of California is in no financial position to replace the vinyl lettering.
