Yeah, unfortunately I believe that most states do this.  In MD, your able to keep your picture for one renewal, so basically for 10 years you can keep the same picture. Since I don’t like my current pic and my license expires this year anyway, I’m going to renew and change my name (and hopefully my address too if we find a house!) at the end of the year complete with a new picture

How annoying!  I saw this on their website, so I was expecting it.  However, after almost an hour in line (combined with broken AC in my car on the drive over), I still looked terrible in my new photo.  Oh well, at least I only have it until my bday in 2011 when it expires.

Haha — thanks for the headsup!!! I never go to the DMV anymore if I’m not ready for a photo op, their procedures change so frequently and are so different state to state!

I went knowing I would get a new picture in DC and when I finally got to the front of the line and everything THE PHOTO MACHINE WAS BROKEN. I was beyond infuriated. They couldn’t print any new licenses that day. I had to come back again the next day and wait in line some more and do it all over again. I think I did get fast-tracked though because my second trip was much speedier than the first, despite there being about the same number of people there.
