I misplaced my license back in April and didn't have time to wait to find it because I needed ID for my new job ASAP. So I paid the $4 and got a new one. They asked "Do you want to keep your old picture or would you like to get a new one?"
Since I look 12 (it's the braces) in my old one and had actually gone through the effort of doing my hair that day I decided, why not? Gimme a new picture! :)
And it was a pretty cute picture, if I do say so myself.
Then in June I needed to get a license with my new married last name on it. So I waited at the DMV for 2 hours, paid the $4 and got a new one. I told them I'd just like to keep the old picture this time. But no. "If you change your name you are required to take a new picture." Which is why I now look like...
a convicted felon on my drivers licence.
