In Manitoba, you are required to hold two parts for your driver’s license

* Part 1 – License Photo Card (renews every 4 years)
* Part 2 – Drivers’ License Certificate (renews every year)

Well .. this year I had to renew my photo once again .. in 2007. My last photo was taken in 2003, and the one before that 1999 and so on and so on. Maybe one day I will collect them all and put them in a separate gallery.

The picture on the top right of this sidebar is really my passport photo taken in the Fall of 1996 just before I went to Europe (UK and Sweden).

Although, I have tons of pictures on the www from my Medieval Wedding on the http://HARTandYVONNE.com/ domain .. basically I look like hell in my previous driver license photos.

But – they changed the rules now. The department of motor vehicles (DMV) branch passed on the taking of these pictures to local Autopac insurance agents, who are authorized to deal with the insurance of the vehicles, and I must say – they are taking good pictures! Although, they have two new rules:

1) NO GLASSES
2) NO SMILING OR GRINNING

If you do any of the above, I am told that Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation (MPIC) will reject your photo and you will have to retake the picture.

Earlier this year .. my wife went to get her new photo and she forgot that it was the year for taking a picture, and went in on her way home from a 2-hour workout at Shapes. She hates it! But, I really like that picture .. (hot!~ whhooweet whewoo)

When I took my picture last week I forgot all about the picture and just got it over with. And, how do I look? I’m squinting like crazy trying to see where the camera was, and I never shaved for a few days because I was on vacation break inbetween cottage long-weekends! Now, I wouldn’t say I look like a gangster or anything like that – but, I think I look exactly how I THINK I WOULD LOOK to a policeman looking at me late at night, blinding me with his flashlight in my eyes, and asking to see my license and registration.

Here is a scan of my driver’s license ..

Naturally, I had to black out certain details for security reasons … I think it looks exactly like me! What do you think?

Just kidding.. Here’s my real photo that I’m stuck with for the next four years .. and, if you see this person squinting and moving his hands all about on the floor or a table or something like that .. please stop and help him find his glasses!

A closer look at my ugly mug
