New Drivers License
On the way back from lunch, I stopped by the Secretary of State office to get a new drivers license card. It was a spur of the moment decision, as I really hadn’t planned on getting a new card since my license is still valid. But my current card was looking pretty raggedy with all four corners having dog-ears. I’ve had it for 7+ years. When it expired the last time, I didn’t go in to get a new picture; I just had them send me the sticker. In any event, I was really surprised that it only took about 20minutes to get the new card. The last time I was there, I spent close to 2 hours trying to switch my Massachusetts license to Illinois. As I look at the card now, can’t help but smile at my own picture. For once, an official government picture came out looking pretty decent. But having a chuckle over the weight listed. It’s so not even right. Hey, the guy didn’t ask me if weight was still correct, he only asked about my address. Beyond the picture, was surprised to learn that they longer put your SSN on the card. Back in Massachusetts, your SSN was your driver’s license number. I suppose not listing the number is a good security measure. Of course, if people really want to find out what it is, it’s not that difficult.
