I'm Such A Ditz!!

My drivers license expired last Sunday & I just realized it! Now I get to take the written test over. I've always been on top of getting it renewd. I guess I've just had too much on my mind lately. Someone please make me feel better & tell me they've done this too!

Wow ~ they're brutal. I would think that they'd give at least a 30-day grace period before they made you retake tests and such.

I did the same thing a few years ago. I didn't realized mine had expired until someone made a comment about it when I showed it as ID while writing a check. *blush* Oh well, at least I just had to pay an extra $15 for letting it expire instead of taking tests over again.

You're definitely not the only one it's happened too!

I don't even have a manual!Guess that means I'll have to wing it. I'm thinking the DMV is open tomorrow morning so I'm going to take care of it then. I'm just glad I haven't gotten stopped in a license check. They've been popping up all over our town lately.

Whoa that sucks. Do they not send you a renewal in the mail? Ours are valid for 5 years to expire on your birthday. At least that way you can't forget them!

Good luck!

Alix, yes they do. But I didn't have my address changed when we moved because I knew that they expired on my birthday & it wasn't that far away.


Pds, yes they do. I'm going to download it tonight to go over.

Thanks!

Don't worry crewsk, you'll be fine. My youngest past his today. My oldest didn't. DANG IT!!!!
We told him over and over to read that book, he's had it for 3 years
Youngest said that it's signs and mostly ones that are plain common scense {SP}
So, you'll do just fine. I think that the only thing you might want to really read is the laws that have changed, just in case.

It's just the written part I'll have to take. I'd fail the driving part for sure if I had to take that again! I don't know what made me think of it today though. I was pulling out of the sub-division to pick the kids up from school & a light bulb just went off in my head.
