The DMV wants forms of id. I have nothing. Everyone wants a form of id. Hence the dilemma.
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 1 year ago.
Did you tell them you have no id?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, and they cannot help me.

I know the organizations to contact to replace, my problem is how can I get a id without any form of id? Everyone is shutting me down.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you look at what you have referred me to, they want a form of id. I have nothing, nothing at all.
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 1 year ago.
You can get court records.
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 1 year ago.
Have you tried going to the social security office?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, the social security office wants forms of id. Court records will have no id to prove it is me.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I even brought my mother with her id, my birth certificate to show she is my mother. The SS office would not accept it.
