S. Florida here. I had to mail away and pay $60 to get an official "real copy" of my BC just to renew my State ID card last year. I had a copy of my
BC, my original SS card, and mail with my name on it. Not good enough.
Took 3 months to get this new BC (and again had to pay $60) with the official raised seal on it, as copies of my original weren't worth anything to
them at the DMV.
Right now I'm in the process of trying to get my DL from out of Revocation. It's expected to take about 8 months to a year; as I was told the
National DMV HQ's database in Albany NY is backed up 6 months.
Advice to kids. If/When you do get your DL, hold onto it like it's gold. Don't ever Drive after drinking, pay tickets on time. I never realized how
valuable and important my DL was till it got suspended. Then I got caught driving on a suspended, and then it got Revoked. I am ashamed to say how
many years ago this was. But there's no statute of limitations. That revoked DL will always be there on my record in their Database.
The process to get a DL back from revocation is absolutely rediculous. You wanna talk about hoop jumping, and waiting. Sheesh. It's so hard I
actually tried and gave up (which I think is their hopes) two times already when trying to do this. I really hope I get it done this time.
