My boyfriend needs a passport and a state ID. This is in Louisiana. Due to a recent DUI he does not have in his possession a valid (unexpired) LA driver's license. What we have are his original birth certificate, expired Tennessee license, photocopy of valid LA license (with documentation of why he doesn't have the actual card), and current photo student ID, but it's complicated.

Can I wait now instead of later?

Oakland, CA DMV: The next available appointment isn't until June 3rd. But years ago I went for an "appointment" and it didn't seem to mean anything - I still waited forever. Can I just show up without an appointment and wait in line forever now instead of on the 3rd? This is for a lost driver's license replacement.

To show or not to show, that is the question.

In New York State, if you are walking down the street on a public sidewalk (not doing anything illegal) and if a police officer asks to see your ID, by law, do you have the right to not show them?

Driver's Test Screwups

So I'm 27 years old and taking the road test to get my (New Jersey) driver's license this week. Since most everyone I know took it, oh, about 10 years ago, I'm feeling a bit nervous when it comes to the little details of the test. If I mess up parallel parking, I can't make a single other error; so tell me, mefites, what did you screw up on while taking your driving test?
