NDR is a joke
I have had a California license for 20 years.
Never had a ticket.
My license expired on my birthday so I went to get it renewed.
I was told that I could not get a license because I had my license suspended in 1972, 39 years ago.
I called NDR and was told to contact the state, she also told me that it is a way states make money.
I filled out their 18 pages of paperwork and paid the $55.
I received a letter stating that they have received all the documents and will mail me their decision within 180 days.
