    I needed to renew my DL a year ago so I went to the DMV.  they did a match with SS and found my legal name according to SS included a hyphenated last name that I have never used on my DL.  They told me I needed a BC to renew.  So I showed up the next week with my copy.  NoGo.  It wasn't certified.  So then I had go go to the register of deeds a couple counties away to get one.  Since it was a bit of a trip, I waited a couple more weeks to go pick one up.   When I got to the Register of Deeds, they asked for proof of identity before they would issue it.  So I presented my now expired DL.  So of course now the clerk says they wont issue it because the DL is expired.  

    I explained that that was the reason I was there in the first place.  She got the actual Register of Deeds person who said they would just look the other way.  However, if they decided to stick to the rules, I'd be SOL and walking everywhere now I suppose.
