I feel so much safer.  This will bump the price of a stolen indentity up from the present $15.00 - $20.00 
dollar range,  must be the ID theft recovery act.
Does not matter where you are, state wise, it is a federal rergulation.
Has any member of the "official" class asked you the question of the day yet:  "Where did you lose them 
at?"  I always reply "If I knew that they would not be lost".  The looks you get almost make the entire 
ordeal worth it.

"Sgt. Schultz" was a harried young man at the entrance who greeted all comers, did a preliminary check 
of paperwork, advised them on necessary forms, and pointed them to the correct line. 
Problems tended to be with:
married women who had changed their names -- IDs with maiden name are no good without proof of 
name change
teenagers (or older) without proof of address (no bank account,
no utilities) ... and no, bringing mommy & daddy along doesn't help
foreign-born attempting to use non_US birth certificates, driver licenses, etc ...
The BMV office I went to was featured in a very bad movie. In the movie it was the gates to hell. It 
wasn't quite that bad!  Folks working there were very polite & competent, but they do follow the rules. It 
was about 1.5 hours total time for me. It should have been much less. The majority of people in line 
were on a return visit or had already been told they weren't prepared but refused to believe Sgt. Schultz.
