I can see how this could be a problem.

 

 

For his that licence, Charles chose the convenient option of importing his passport photo which he had used since 2005.

The seven-year-old picture then rolled over onto the full licence a year later, which he used until losing it two months ago.

"It has always been a bit of a joke for me and my mates whenever we go out or just to the supermarket to buy drinks because the reactions I get are priceless," Charles said.

After years of being laughed at by bartenders and doormen when he showed his driving licence as ID, he was thrilled when an opportunity came up to replace his photo.

"I can't count how many times I've explained how old I was to cashiers and bouncers and that's after they've burst out laughing," Charles explained.

"When I lost my licence in January I was looking forward to a new lease of life with a photo that actually looks like me so I couldn't believe it when my old one was issued again."

Having got his hopes up for a brand new driving licence with a photo from his current passport, Charles opened up the brown envelope to discover his eleven-year-old self staring back at him.

His next ID should have his photo as a fetus...
On a serious side though, how could he have been 'amazed', if he hadn't provided a new and current photo for the renewal of his ID? I mean, what other photo do you expect to get when you never provide a new one? lol

I was looking forward to a new lease of life with a photo that actually looks like me so I couldn't believe it when my old one was issued again.


He was expecting to be able to provide an updated photo. Not have it reissued as is. Thats how I read it.

So his amazement is more about bureaucracy not maintaining accuracy with official documents than anything in my opinion.

Yes, I didn't think of looking at it from this side. Either way a funny quagmire, though! :D
