Hey Joe, have you or any of your viewers shared an experience similar to what recently happened at the Salisbury DMV with my son? He went to the DMV to register for the "REQUIRED" Real ID Enrollment. He had the required documents but for some reason they would not accept his birth certificate. Now this is the same birth certificate that was used he entered our school system. It's the same birth certificate that was used when he went to get his drivers learner permit and license. It was the same birth certificate that was used when he applied for his passport and now, out of the blue, his birth certificate was suddenly not acceptable."But", they sent him over to the Health Department and for $22.00 they printed up a "New" birth certificate that they would accept.
Something stinks here. Whose pocket or what fund is all this extra money going into? When someone applies for their Maryland license all the same information the Real ID Enrollment is asking for they already have. So what has happened? Have they lost all that information and are they trying to quietly get it back without telling anyone.? Has their security system been hacked in some way that they can't use their old system again? Is this just a way that Maryland has figured out that they could make a few bucks? (You know - taxes&fees)? We all know who controls the General Assembly.
So, what's going on? Is this an isolated incident or has others had similar experiences?
