Mine said I was 2 inches shorter for YEARS. I had a growth spurt in college and since they always let me renew my license by mail I could never correct it, until I finally went in person to change my name after the wedding and was able to update everything else then.

The weight was accurate when I filled out the form in 2010, and I just checked it(!)–still accurate now. Although it was definitely NOT accurate for a few months there. 😉

My weight listed is the same from when I got my temps at age 15… haha. So it’s about 30 under. But hopefully by the wedding I’ll be quite a bit closer to that number!

Just exactly what are you trying to imply, officer?

Happily, PA does not put weights on their DLs. I don’t look my weight, so I could/would probably lowball the number by about 25 pounds and not be questioned, though. No shame 🙂

My DL says 180 and I really weigh 220-230…

I am waiting for the day they make you step on a scale. UGH.

Mine is a difference of about 40lbs, considering it’s been about 7 years since I actually updated all of my info on my DL I guess that’s not too bad, but I’m definitely planning on losing some serious weight soon. I lied when I filled it out the first time too, because as my mother said, “everyone does it.” Haha, and this was back when I considered myself really skinny still.

Wow I had no idea weight, height, eye colour was put on a licence, we dont have any of that on Australian licences – just name, address, date of birth and whether you are an organ donar.

I’m going to guess 60lbs because that’s how much I’ve gained since I got my recent one two years ago. Damn pills…

MI (where i lived for six years, ending in september 2011) didn’t require weight i don’t think…NJ (my homestate) and MN (my current state) both ask you but don’t put it ON your license.  anyway, i don’t remember any of the others, but when i filled out the paperwork for MN last september i’m pretty sure i put 175lb on there and felt a little guilty because i thought at the time that i might be closer to 180lb.  the reality is that as of a week or two ago, i was actually 165lb, so i guess my license would say i’m 10lb heavier than i actually am.  go figure, lol.

My DL is about 5lbs over what I am currently. I have lost a little bit of weight since then.

Although, I had to correct it that last time, because the DL before that had an error and said I weighed something ridiculous like 28kg. So when I went to change it when I was getting a new DL, the lady laughed her butt off and said, ” yeah right, maybe your left leg, if that!”. Um, yeah I get that there is no way on Gods green earth I am only 28kg, but give me a break. I wonder what the other clients thought. They probably thought I was trying to lie about my weight! haha
