The only time I got in and out of a DMV office in a timely manner, was in the military. I already had an International license, but wanted to upgrade it to be able to drive larger trucks. Sometimes we would be able to pick up our own supplies, and not be required to be on duty during the weekend.
The instructor asked for someone to bring the truck/trailer from the parking lot to where we were, so I did. I guess he was surprised that I backed it into place from about a block away. He handed me a piece of paper, and said I was free to go get my license
