Q) If I am trying to get my son his temporary driver’s license. Can I use a copy of his birth certificate? Or do you need the original?
A) It depends on the state’s policy. In some states, a copy of the birth certificate is accepted while in other states, they require the original. It’s best to check with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or the agency responsible for issuing driver’s licenses to confirm the documentation requirements. Additionally, some states may also require additional documents such as proof of residency, Social Security card, and a signed parent/guardian consent form.
The requirements for obtaining a temporary driver’s license for a minor may vary by state. However, in general, you will likely need to provide an original or certified copy of your son’s birth certificate, rather than a copy. This is because the DMV needs to verify that your son meets the minimum age requirements for obtaining a temporary driver’s license.
It is always best to check with your local DMV office or the licensing agency in your state to confirm what specific documents are required to obtain a temporary driver’s license for a minor. They will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information on what you need to bring to the DMV.
