.....You couldn't take your diploma that you got at graduation and photocopy it?
In Texas, if you move there from another state, you don't have to re-take the driving test to get your license as long as your out-of-state license hasn't expired. But to do so, you need stuff like proof of ID, SSN, your old license, proof of enrollment in school or a GED program, and some other things. But this FML sounds fishy if OP doesn't have a license, and yet needs his proof of school enrollment.
Well if proof of enrollment is needed, OP is under 18. And you don't need a license. Show them your old student ID or previous license. They told you wrong because I just had to access my transcripts and diploma like two weeks ago for my insurance company. All they need is a photo ID and you should be able to tell them your social security number. But you DO NOT have to have a driver's license. That has nothing to do with it. And before anyone gives me shit, I live in Texas so I know the rules for our school systems.
You don't get a diploma at graduation. You get a piece of paper that says you participated in the graduation ceremony, and it LOOKS like a diploma for pictures. You pick up the real thing a few weeks after school, when all your final grades have been officially submitted and the paperwork is complete.
He is saying though that you should always be able to get a state I.D regardless of school enrollment and that the school should accept that I.D. in place of a driver's license. Then they could take the diploma that they retrieved with the state I.D. to go get the license they originally wanted. It was a perfectly logical comment.
Most of you are saying this sounds fishy, and I tried to write this part in the FML, but I didn't have room with the 300 character limit... Since I was a senior for only 9 weeks (half of a semester) this year, they refused give me a new school ID. I tried using my ID from Junior year, since I figured 2009-2010 would work, but they said that that ID was invalid starting the first day of this year. They said that my only other option would be a driver's license. Same situation, more details...
