I first got an OR driver’s license in 1982. It lapsed at some point, and in 1992 I got another one. It has the date 1982 as the first time I got an OR licenese (can’t remember what the exact wording is). So even though it lapsed, it still says the first date I got an OR license. I’ll have to look at another state DL I have to see if it’s the same on that one.
It sounds as thought 1995 is the first IL DL he got with that name.
When my son gets up I will look at his. He accidentally let his lapse. Moving and stuff.
I think you can drive on a out of state DL for a certain period of time usually. Cont. could mean continued from out of state license?!
What I find interesting is the timing he decided to get his Illinois DL. Maybe the name was Soetoro too.
