Driver's License Renewal
I just went and got my driver's license renewed earlier today and I noticed that a few changes have taken place in the procedures the DMV in the state I live in uses when issuing you a new license. They now ask you a few preliminary questions, then they snap your picture. Then lastly, they give you the vision and road sign test.
And much to my surprise, they only give you a printed out temporary driver's license that is good for 2 weeks while you wait for the real one to come through the mail. And the temporary license cannot be used for I.D. purposes. That's why they let you keep your old license--just in case you need a form of I.D. before your new license arrives.
Also, the fee went up from $32 to $40 this year. Oh well...I'm good for another 8 years now. Hopefully by then they won't have made too many more changes--especially in the fee category.
