That cop was very unprofessional. Don't licenses, IDs and passports have that eagle thing that's hard to forge? Or is that just passports. In any case, that sucks. Looking young isn't always good.
If the cop said the OP was "clearly underage" and couldn't tell if his license was fake? then yes, he was unprofessional. As a bartender, I've seen some fake IDs. The newest trick is using an older person's ID that looks similar to you. I've busted so many people trying to pass themselves off as their friend. Asking them a few questions like, "quick, what's your address?" is always fun!
I think, 28, that 4 is referring to the hologram in the shape of our nation's seal, which is a bald eagle holding arrows in one claw and an olive branch in another. I also used to think that a hologram on an ID was pretty solid proof that an ID was genuine back when I was a cashier who sold cigarettes, but then I stopped into a liquor store one day and saw that they had some confiscated fake IDs on display, and some of them has holograms! Boy, did I feel silly, and wondered how many fake IDs had gotten by me.
Most fake id's are missing watermarks and microsecurity stamps. Those things are incredibly difficult to Forge, but most people don't know to look for them. To get one properly forged that looks damn near real would be thousands, and that is not worth it to an underage driver.
Almost everyone has a baby face at 16... That'll happen when you haven't gotten through puberty.
18, Puberty typically occurs between the ages of ten and seventeen and where a person starts within that depends on environmental factors and genetics. Some people finish around sixteen. Others, don't start puberty until they're sixteen. There's a very good chance that OP is just one of us late bloomers.
Sorry 18, but puberty of the body has very little to do with the structure of the face if it's small and youthful looking, or the other way round, broader and mature-looking. Also, I finished puberty (at least, my body stopped visibly changing) at 15, and now at 22 people think I AM 15.
It sucks now but I'm sure you'll appreciate your baby face in the future. Me, on the other hand, have been asked if I was 27... and I'm 17. In the meanwhile, try to avoid situations like this using sunglasses and stylish professional jackets that make you look older :) Good luck OP!
