Be sure to bring (as a parent) proof of residancy and another bill. They would not let me use my DL as proof for my child to get an ID. I went to the DPS in Spring cause it's usually MUCH faster than the one in Humble! I used my car insurance & a bank statement (not over 30 days old) and signed some document saying she resided in my home, along w the fees.. I HATE going to the DPS!! You can look on the web site for all acceptable proof they allow! If I remember correctly she had to have her school id too cause it had a picture?

DPS has many locations around - I think some of them are larger than others maybe called service centers? I know the one in Spring you can call and get put in line and they actually call you (automated) to update you where in line you are and what the wait will be etc. I've never waited longer than 15 min there.
For my DL we went to the Liberty DPS, it was fairly fast. Definitely much faster than the one in Humble.
I know that with the passport services some post offices have appt only system that they don't specify on the website.
The Liberty DPS is awesome. It's sooo tiny but a super pleasant drive and you can pop into the antique stores and all that while you're there. I like towns with the courthouse and town square and main street. All we have in Huffman is Valero!
Don't be scared to give Humble DPS a try. I went to renew my licence a few weeks back. Went late afternoon and they called me back within 10 mins of getting my number. Had to finish my paperwork at the counter.
@TXNS_fan I am well versed in many things such as DL's, ID Cards, bonded titles, passports, wills, POA, etc... but going to the DPS is not something I will want to volunteer. It's a bonding experience you and DD need to have together!!! Best of luck!
