Just when you thought the DMV lines and stacks of paperwork couldn’t get any more annoying, HELL ON EARTH, err, we mean the DMV has found a way to make themselves even more inconvenient. Starting July 1st, new drivers will have to provide a second form of identification rather than just one to prove they’re a California resident.
There are several choices of acceptable documentation that the DMV will accept, including any of the following:
- Rental or lease agreement
- Deed or tittle to residential real property
- Mortgage bill, utility bills (which apparently can include a cell phone bill)
- School documents
- Medical documents
- IRS return.
- JACK FM sticker with your name illegibly scrawled on it
Okay the last one was a joke, but there are several other forms of ID you can also use. Luckily this does not apply to anyone who is renewing their license or applying for a duplicate/lost or stolen card.
Will this make it harder for your 16 year old to earn his or her permit? Is that necessarily a bad thing?
