    Was told that a small town police dept in my neighboring town had a road check and took 3 different people's D/L's because they did not have a birth cert with them in the vehicle. Said it was a law since 9/11, also said they would have to go through DMV to get their D/L back. This happened in VA

    One guy has contacted the FBI and the local Sheriff over it.

    Anything to a law like this??

    I imagine like many states a Birth certificate is required to GET a DL but I never heard of having to have one on you when you drive.

    When I was sixteen, I had to show one to Motor Vehicle Division to get my license since I had no history in the DL system. No one has ever asked me for one in context of a driver's license or a traffic stop. I never asked for one either.

    New to me! No way I'd want to carry around important personal documents like that. Could be a problem if lost or stolen.

    i.e. I don't believe it is a law anywhere.

    This is what I hope the case is. Hope it's a BS story that got bigger as it spread.

    In the past when I worked visiting a little I have had people try to visit using that as an ID. Of course my standard answer was, "No."

    I would bet there DL's were expired. In that case to get a DL reissued one needs birth certificate and other forum of ID.

    There was a big flap about that here. Lesson,,, don't let your DL expire.
