Keeps you on the edge of your seat while waiting your turn!
In the US, many of the local motor vehicle bureaus have ended the traditional maze of long lines and endless shifting from one window to the next. Now they utilize a computerized system that issues you an alpha-numeric ticket based on the purpose of your visit. And then they seat you in a large room
with screens that announce your number. "...G56 Report to Window #14..." or "...E72 Report to Window #30..."
So while the wait time isn't any shorter, the system can be used to have fun. Therefore, we shall have DMV BINGO where you are issued a game card with your ticket. If you win, you get to move to the front of your line. And if you don't win, the anticipation of winning will help pass the time.

||To make it interesting, the DMV would have to randomize the order of the numbers. May make it a little harder to estimate your ETA. I still like this idea though (+)
||They could randomize assignment, not service, so it could
still be first come first serve.
||Not really an original idea. (Or, at least, it seems to have occurred to a lot of online posters before.)
