Early Closure on the last working day of December and June

I would like to encourage you to come into the office at your earliest convenience.  It is busiest at the end of the day.  Unfortunately different driver's license scenarios are more time consuming than others, and we do quit taking driver's license customers if we are backed up at the end of the day so that we can have customers that have been checked in issued to by 4:00PM.
