First off well done @Changing4Best - making the appointment is the first and only way to overcome this challenge.
I don't think there'd be many ppl arguing with you about government agencies. But at the same time, take it one step at a time. You're renewing your licence so it's not as gruelling as starting off at the beginning. Is it?
I rescheduled the appointment to my home town. The one I'd made previously was two hours from here. Now our state is opening more DMV offices, so I was able to get one much closer. At least it won't take so long to get there.
