I had to renew my NY driver’s license this month and could do it by mail or online, only needing to have an eye doctor report to attest I am still blind enough to wear glasses when I drive. No problem. Done. Mailed in my $80.00 for an eight year renewal. The license arrived yesterday. Not the enhanced one. Not one for Federal use. Just a regular old NY Driver’s License.
But what’s sooooo strange is for easily the last three cycles of renewal, no one has told me I need a new photo. The photo of me is at least two chins ago, 1980s eyeglasses, and a hairdo that has me wondering what was I thinking?
In RI, the renewal is every five years. You must go to the DMV and must get a new photo each time.
I guess they figure at my age how much could I change? Ha ha. Passports make you change photos every time. Maybe NY looked at my stellar driving record and knows I’m no threat? Got me, but it’s funny looking at me on my license and wondering, hey who is That Girl?
