P` WRITES:…Advice to our Law Enforcement brothers and sisters, when seeking California DMV Drivers’ License renewal. Bring ALL documents for `REAL ID.`
Got my Calif DL renewal via mail. It said I have a good record, no accidents or tickets. “Respond at DMV before your birthday, pay $34, take eye test, get new picture and wait for License to come in mail.”
After a FIVE hour encounter at DMV, mission complete❗
Within a weeks time, my new license comes in the mail. Upon review noticed something different. New license says:
“Federal Restrictions Apply”.
What a surprise, I got A Non Documented Alien D-Lic, Calif. Assembly Bill 60, (AB-60) .
Went to my part time job at a Gun Shop. CAL-DOJ/Firearms Division put out a Notice that the new CDL (AB 60 License) IS NOT VALID TO PURCHASE A FIREARM !!!! Also not accepted as a form of ID to board an airline to fly anywhere beginning 2020.?
CAL-DOJ Notice shows clear examples of Federal restricted license and Copies of Real ID.
Call to CAL-DOJ confirms new CDL has these restrictions. I was advised by them to get a “Real ID”. Told That I must respond BACK to DMV, bring in my SS Card, my Birth Certificate and my proof of residence (Car Reg. in my name OK), pay additional fee and get this `Real ID`..
I responded back to DMV. After a 3 hour wait to speak to a supervisor, he says, “CAL-DOJ is wrong.” That “your NEW Current AB-60, Federal Restriction ID is good for Gun purchase.” SO I produced tgecCAL-DOJ info bulletin that negates such. AFTER 1 hour of more confusion and head scratching with DMV Management I gave them the CAL-DOJ info bulletin.
Conclusion by these state DMV employees:..”CAL-Dept. of Motor Vehicles and CAL-Department of Justice in conflict with policies”..❓
DMV instructed me to again APPLY to get the “Real ID”, pay $28 dollars more, produce SS card, birth certificate and proof of residence. Told him I had already paid $34 for the license.
DMV Response by new clerk: “sorry no info bulletins are sent out with DLic Renewal…?
Only way to get `Real ID` was to follow their policy of resubmitting.
I provided these items, copies made of all my documents, packet submitted with fingerprint and new picture..
Have to wait to see what arrives in the mail..?
I’m just a native son of SF, driving since 16, now 61. 34 years wearing a uniform, BADGE & gun. Holy SHIT Batman..! Just doesn’t seem right.! Governor Moonbeam BROWN and the Communist California Legislature got me…❗
