In an effort to make the DMV seem less like the seventh ring of hell, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland security has installed 72 iPad kiosks in 26 of these Satanic outposts across the state.

The terminals let drivers swipe and tap through the forms they need to re-up, and pay with a credit or debit card at the end. And they don’t have to wait several weeks to get the updated document in the mail—the license prints out in just a few minutes. Read the full story at Gizmodo.
