    It used to be 10 years...not sure why it is a shorter period of time than before. Maybe because I'm getting old and they need to check my eyes more often.

    Getting my Birth Certificate is doable, but it means a trip to the Waukesha County Courthouse...I would not be lovin' that trip back to Wingnutville.

      with my Recall Walker window cling on the rear window of my hatchback along with the Wisconsin Blue Fist protest one.  It's like a permanent middle finger to the RWNJs.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      I think they explained that it was for everyone and for health reasons (eyesight, infirmity, being white, etc).

    •  In NY, I just got mine renewed. (1+ / 0-)

      If I'm good and avoid the cops, I'm set for another 8 years.

      Didn't have to go through the garbage that puddytat describes.  

      Like MA person above, just had to bring old license, get pix taken, pass an eye test (or bring a form from eye dr), write down SS #, and swear I was telling the truth with a signature.  

      If my address had changed, then they wanted new utility bill, or something with current address, like a bank statement.  Just in case, I had the color copy of my passport page with me.  

      New license just arrived yesterday.  Pix is much better than the old one, thank goodness!  Which, BTW at the county license bureau, they told me I didn't have to get a new pix taken, which I was surprised about.
