Don't get me started on New Jersey and their 6 points of I.D..... Seems the law abiding citizens always get screwed whether it be gun control or whatever. After all, most of the 9/11 hijackers had VALID NJ driver licenses.
My son went for his driving test this past Monday on his 17th birthday. He passed, and went onto 3 other lines with literally a bag full of I.D.....at the last line everything ground to a halt, he had "nothing" with his address on it. (having been only 16 YOA until then, he didn't receive any bills in the mail) He had his state issued driver's permit (with his address on it, I guess the I.D. that motor vehicle itself issues doesn't count!
) passport, school ID, school report card, bank book, social security card, work I.D.... They finally asked if he lived with me and then took a photocopy of my license.
My wife was the victim of identity theft and went to DMV to repace her license. She also showed up with a bag of I.D.... she was turned away twice, as some of her I.D. was in her maiden name (University diploma). We had to mail away to where we were married for our marriage certificate, and, as such she drove around for a month without a license in posession. Some cities have been known to charge women in the same predicament because of maiden name $40 or so for the marriage certificate.
My neighbor went to renew his license and they wouldn't accept most of his I.D. as proof of who he was, not even his old license...but they DID gladly accept his passport. And guess what was the only thing he needed to show when he applied for the passport? Yes, ONLY HIS LICENSE!
