All three of the DMV's most challenging words were six to 10 letters, but certainly summon suppressed memories of sixth grade spelling exams. 

D.C.: Ninety. Where exactly does the 'e' go? And why are D.C. residents so interested in this integer? 

Maryland: Special. Seemingly harmless, but misspelled adjectives were a common theme this year. 

Virginia: Delicious. There are some tricky vowels here. 

And an honorable mention to Wisconsin, who forgot how exactly to spell Wisconsin this year.
