My son just finished driver’s ed this past week. Today I pulled him out of school so he could take his permit test. Before we left I tried to gather all of the items needed to take said test. Birth certificate, $10.50, parent, picture ID and social security card. I have the parent thats me, I have the money, I have a copy of the birth certificate and I know the SS number. Apparently a copu of the birth certificate is not good enough. I need the official copy. So after waiting in line at the DMV for half an hour we had to go downtown and get the official copy of the birth certificate. Son wanted to be dropped off at home but I made him go with because this was his deal. I want to know how people get their driver’s license when they are illegal immigrants. We had all of the proper papers but not an official one. I don’t get this.
