I took my 15 yr. old son to get his Learners License yesterday, his birthday was on Saturday, we had to return with MORE documentation even though we had a “copy” of his birth certificate, his original social security card AND a proof of enrollment in school signed and certified by his school. Guess what? The “copy” of his birth certificate was not good enough. Has to be the original. Even though I am his Mother and gave birth to the 9 lb 4 oz bundle of joy . . . so I asked that instead of me having to make yet another trip to the safe deposit box IF his passport would suffice and she said YES as long as it was current so I opted for that and we returned home for that since I hadn’t returned them all to the safe deposit box after our spring break cruise. You don’t know how tempted I was to smart off about the birth certificate but given the fact we were at the mercy of the employees of the DMV . . . I did not.
Hope Obama doesn’t have to get an AL driver’s license in Huntsville AL anytime soon OR else he will not have the proper documentation the rest of us unwashed masses must supply.
You *should* be able to use a photoshop of your son's BC. Make sure it has each and every distinct ink spot as its own layer.
Wonder if someone could go to where ever The Messiah got his drivers license, Illinois I would guess? Once there ask for the back up documents that were used to grant the license. That would include a copy of his birth certificate. Might take an FOI request, long shot but possible.
Shucks in Oregon they demand the same kind of stuff, unless.......You are an illegal then all you need is the Mexican ID issued by their consulate, Is this a great country or what?
the original stays with the department
You can only get a CERTIFIED copy ( a copy of the original with a raised seal certifying that it was made from the original)
you cannot COPY the CERTIFIED COPY and use that, you need the ORIGINAL CERTIFIED COPY
People are using ORIGINAL and ORIGINAL CERTIFIED COPY interchangeably as if they were the same thing, and they are not
I got my driver’s license in Huntsville many moons ago.....I know EXACTLY what you mean. :)
