I got approved to get my drivers license renewed!

:banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

If you live in Orlando, FL watch out! There's gonna be a crazy guy on the road, lol.

But seriously, I don't have a car and I need a job to buy one, heh. That'll change soon enough.

Congratulations on (re)gaining your independence!

CQ, last time I had to get a new picture taken, they (Texas) made me take my glasses off, which makes no sense, if you ask me :rolleyes:

Weird, now that you mention it, I don't have my glasses on in my Texas drivers license either! I wonder if I was wearing contacts at the time...

Yes, I am very excited. I am still in Peru for another 13 days, but I hope to get my license ASAP once I'm back in the states. I'll probably have to take a driving test, which will be interesting, because I'm not sure how I'm supposed to practice without a license. I guess I'll call the DMV when I get back home and ask some questions first.

This is a HUGE relief though... I can finally not worry about my commute to work! This will make things a whole lot easier. :)

Do they get you to take of your glasses because the light reflects on the lenses

They make you take your glasses off because they are implementing facial recognition technology as part of the "Universal ID" system.

Great news, just picked up my license today. It was a crazy hassle. Couldn't pass the eye test at the DMV so had to go to the eye doctor. Then the eye doctor filled out the form wrong saying my prescription changed so it said I needed new glasses when I didn't so the DMV refused the form. Fortunately I could just have them fax over a corrected form. Of course, this wasn't without the DMV having me retry the eye test. Well my eyes are crossed still somewhat from a lazy eye, so I don't have proper vision and I can't use those machines! The whole reason I went to the eye doctor was to get the form... Grrr. Anyway, getting past that, next they asked two questions: 1. Have you been diagnosed with a mental condition in the last two years. 2. Do you have a seizure disorder? Yes to both, lol. ugh

I honestly don't understand the first question, nor did I even know they asked it. The clerk told me to wait, and as I was sitting, walked up to me and asked "have you been declared mentally incompetent by a court" which really strikes me but I guess that's what they're after. Makes me wonder though, how would I have gotten to the DMV if I were unstable...

But, I walked out with my license! They really had me riled up.

Congrats!

P.S. My parents have similar stories about the DMV and their eyesight/eye docs. At least they didn't have to wait in line again on successive trips to the DMV.
