Why does the state of Florida have to put women through an emotional and financial wringer when they apply for a Florida driver license?
When a man or woman moves to Florida from another state they are required to get a Florida drivers license within a certain amount of time to be “legal.”
The requirements are said to be for “national security.” How dangerous is a law-abiding, tax-paying, registered with the Social Security Administration, born in the U.S.A., senior citizen?
To have to dredge up past history and heartbreaks of losing one or more spouses, and other hardships better left forgotten as well as the added financial burden of having to pay to find these lost records is just not right.

It seems that an illegal alien with no or very little identification is accommodated by almost all levels of government with more benefits and programs that are, by the way, paid for with taxpayer money, than the senior citizens and truly needy legal citizens of this country!
The Florida Department of Licensing seems to think they are better than another documenting agency, that being the Social Security Administration.
A woman has to provide documentation every time she has a name change to the SSA. The Florida DOL says that is not good enough for them. They need to see the original documents from years ago that may have been lost through the years but have already been recorded by the SSA.
There are less stringent requirements to get a passport than what is required by the Florida DOL to get a drivers license. All of this bureaucratic run around just to be able to drive “legally” is ridiculous.
