How to Get a Drivers Licence

It took a month but I got one here in Pennsylvania:

Here is what you need:

  1. Your old Licence
  2. Your birth certificate - if married also marriage certificate
  3. Social Security Card - I could not find mine so it took 2 weeks to get it during Christmas season
  4. 2 proofs of address - must be bills and not just cards
It took me 2 hours on my second attempt to get it. You don't need to take any tests except one of patience. I had hope when they had 4 windows open, I am number 448 and started at 416. Then they went down to 1. It took 1.5 hours to file for my licence, 5 to get in line for the picture and 10 to get Nancy spelt without an E
At least they had a public bathroom there.
Pennsylvania has farmed out who does registration and licence tags so you have to shop around. I just found out I need a form signed by a mechanic or notary reaffirming my VIN number then I will try again. This is through the same company that is willing to insure my car without verification of VIN.
I don't understand.
