What happened to me today!

mustangluver 2012/05/04 03:25:32
Would you believe, i had to go all the way to another town, like 45 mins, to the DMV to renew my license, and the woman said since i didn't have a passport, i have to show my marriage certificate..we were pissed!!! I said, are you kidding me here, Obama didn't need a birth certificate to be a president and i have to show my marriage certificate to drive? I showed you my drivers license and my birth certificate and SS card, how can that not be enough ID? I am just renewing, not applying for the first time for Christ sake..i have had a license since 1972! Since when did this happen? She said in 09...I was so outraged that the cop sitting there asked me to leave..LOL..All that gas wasted!!! But thank goodness, and just in time, right down the street where i get my registration and pay taxes is also going to do licenses starting on the 14th so my BD is 5/9 and i'll just not drive for 5 days..
You!

    Not gonna get into a birther argument here but...

    I've always wondered why a passport isn't issued to everyone on birth. National ID conspiracies aside, it would provide every man, woman, and child with a real photo-ID that is accepted not only nationwide, but worldwide. Using a driver's license is fine in most cases, but it does single people out who don't drive.

    Even if you don't travel, a Passport is a useful ID that you can use to get anything done, including getting other forms of ID. I don't know how license renewal works in your state, but I would imagine that your pain-in-the-ass steps stem from the fact that college kids are making fake IDs to get booze, nothing more.

    Makes me glad I'm licensed in Arizona, the license I got at 16 is valid until my 65th birthday.

    My license has my photo on it...and i renewed it here in Fl 3 times now. My SS# says who i am. I have had a license since 1972..and one that does not drive can get a photo ID...

    Your proof did not match - you said it didn't, so they were not going to believe you are who you say you are. YOU said, your SS name was different, AND if so, it listed what else you needed to bring. WHY are you complaining? I can't believe all these people instantly jumping to your defense like this. You are not Obama, they have rules, you expected them to bend the rules, which they will not do. I'll bet the next time you deal with the state, you will do your homework first.

    Yes, i didn't realize i had an old one..so got my new one and went back, guess what, they said i needed 2 things with my physical address as i have a box number on everything..so i had to come all the way home and back again..guess what, they said my marriage certificate was a church one, not a state one and i had to get one..i started screaming..she said this was all due to Homeland Security..i was fit to be tied..came home and did it online..and NO, I DID NOT EXPECT NOTHING..i am not that kind of person. I was appalled that after having renewed my license there many times, that they would know all my info was correct..

    'Stang, we no longer live in "America". Not certain what they're gonna call this place, but it may sound something like the United Socialist States of... not even certain they'd use "America" in the name, as it has bad connotations, to their minds.

    They can't force a passport as most people don't have one. They can't force a marriage certificate as many people aren't married and a marriage certificate means nothing as very few require ID. A birth Certificate should have been all you needed. That's all they need here. Someone is scamming you.

    Nope, i looked up my DMV and it lists the things you must bring and it says if you don't have a passport you have to have a marriage certificate..if your name is diff on your SS card..

    Just get your name updated on your SS card...that's the clincher.

    It was a mistake..i accidentally brought a very old one..from a previous marriage name..i updated this one 26 yrs ago..brought it back and then there was another problem, i had nothing with my physical address on it, even my license has my Box # on it..so i had to come home and go back again..then they said my marriage certificate was a church one and i needed to get a state one...i nearly had a heart attack..i said you have got to be kidding me..i have renewed my license 3 times here..all my info remains the same..she said all the changes came from Homeland
    Security.. so i came home and did it online..what a horrible 2 days!

    They can't as really how many are married and marriage proves nothing. This one move closer to the ID stamp on the forehead or hand. I see the beast is moving closer each day to that mark.

    I'd hold them back. So what all single people can't get a license. Ask to see the paperwork and see it in writing before you hand over all your documents.
