It seems that folks on this site are perrenially interested in "How long did it take . . . ?" Here is one data point: I dropped the renewal papers for my NH P&R (non-resident) in the mailbox a week ago Monday. On my street, the mailbox is collected about 2 pm. My new license came in the mail yesterday. Our mail is delivered about 5 pm. That means that my renewal took exactly seven days and three hours, and that is before subtracting the elapsed time for a round trip through the mail to Dover, NH. Wow.
