Yes thankfully I do! Thanks! I have a few cousins who don't & I feel really bad for them. Especially the one who turned a lawnmower upside down to fix the blade & all the gas drained out. Then he couldn't figure out why it wouldn't start back.

Crewsk - you're NOT a ditz!!! Happens to lots of us...you'll do fine. Do you have to pay a fine for being late? Or just take the test? Good luck!!!

I'll have to take the test & they have changed the length of time your license is good from 5yrs to 10yrs & upped the price. It was $12.50 now it's $25! I sure hope they don't add a fine on to it!

I'd be happy to pay 25 if I didn't have to go back for 10 years. The Dmv here is really dirty and very very slow.

Ouch! I haven't done this with my driver's license, but have a couple of times with my military ID card, at times when it was important for me to have a valid one. Now we live so far from any military facilities that when I didn't renew it, I didn't think that much about it. One day I woke up (DUH) and realized my ID card acts as my insurance card. If I had a medical emergency I'd have to proof of medical insurance. OUCH yet again, you know you'd pay far more than taking a test! You better believe we were down at the local guard/reserve office tout suite!!!! So it isn't you being ditzy. We all forget important things when we get busy.

wow thats cheap for a licence. In Alberta its over 50.00 and only good for 5 years and if you have heart problem or some other medical problem and you have to renew every year its still 50.00 not sure what it is in Ontario but I know its still expencive. Thats canadian dollars but its still a lot of money.

OK, my day just got worse! I have had a drivers license for 10 years & the lady told me today when I went to renew it that I couldn't because my Social Security number wasn't verified in their system!!! How in the blue blazes did I get it renewed 5 years ago then? I didn't have my SS card with me & since I don't work, I don't have any pay stubs to verify it either. I'm going to have to go back next week to do it.


Thank you all for making me feel better about forgetting, I really appriciate it!

Whoa! Sounds like the BMV computer system needs an upgrade! If it makes you feel better, I've forgotten to renew my licence AND I never remember to get new validation stickers for my plates. I've had a few $40 tickets in the past... (coff, coff)
