  •  This is so ridiculous! (3+ / 0-)

    There has to be some middle ground.

    There seems to be general disinformation about the importance of the passport - above, someone referred to it as the "gold standard" - but based on what you experienced that's not the case.  The infuriating thing is that you and I already had to prove who we were - just to get a passport.

    Thanks for sharing - I'm sorry you had to go through that.

    •  Well, BMVs are particularly infamous. (1+ / 0-)

      I've had problems with switching licenses in nearly every state I've lived in save for Michigan.  And don't even get me started on car title transfers.

      Ironically, the most Republican-area BMV I ever went to was also the most laid-back and efficient.  They accepted my I.D.s without question, guided me through the title transfer process, and I left with a brand new license in under an hour, with my Michigan car title arriving about a week later.

      None of the horseshit that the other states put me through, simply because they could.
