FINALLY received my SS card today (wed 7/7). Took quite a long time. Now I can finally get my TX drivers license. I have an appointment for this Friday at DMV. Yippee! [emoticon]

I'd like the DMV to accept the picture in my signature (Mr. Ed, the talking horse), but I don't think that will happen! [emoticon]

I get why they need all of that information for a Real ID/Drivers License so I assume that either Texas does not have a non-Real ID drivers license or you did not want one.


You assume wrong. Texas has had Real ID for years, and you don't get a choice.


I was wrong about what? It was an either/or statement and you eliminated the or.

Finally got my TX DL this morning. My appointment was for 11:30 AM. Hoping to be seen earlier, I arrived before 8. I got to the clerk's window almost immediately. She was sympathetic to the fact I had been to the DMV 6 times in the last month and really smoothed the way to my license. I had concerns because my AZ DL was due to expire Aug 29th.

The fact that my licensing ordeal had taken a couple of months wasn't the fault of the DMV. The main problem was all my documents had been stolen, along with my vehicle, in Albuquerque some time ago and needed to be replaced (SS card, birth certificate, military discharge (DD-214), etc.). The single most difficult document was the SS card. It took about 1 1/2 months to receive a replacement.

Now that I'm an official Texan, I'll need to learn the language, y'all. [emoticon]

I don’t think its that simple in all cases, Old biscuit. I know I’d checked that avenue out and decided to deal directly with the local SSA office here. One reason why it took so long to receive my SS card was because the office was closed for personal service due to Covid and it was necessary to deposit any documents in a drop box located just inside the main doors. Evidently, they misplaced my documents, so I mailed a new set of docs directly to the office. This time, the process went quickly and I got my card without much delay. If I had mailed them initially rather than dropping them off, the process would have been fairly quick, but who knew?

Mr. Ed, we are glad you got it straightened out. Now you can sleep better. [emoticon]
