I recently moved from California to Utah. I went to the Utah DMV to trade my CA drivers license for a Utah one. I am legally required to do so within 2 months of moving.
The Utah DMV destroyed my CA drivers license and issued me a temporary paper drivers license and said my drivers license card will come in the mail within 4 weeks. This was perfect, since I was supposed to be flying 5 weeks after applying for the license. Today my husband received his drivers license in the mail, but all I got was a piece of paper for my doctor to sign. My first Utah endocrinology appointment isn’t until December 10th, but I am flying back home for my grandmas birthday in California on December 7th. I am only staying for 24 hours, then heading home to Utah.
The TSA doesn’t accept temporary paper drivers licenses for flying, and my CA drivers license was destroyed by the Utah DMV when they issued my temporary one. Has anybody found themselves trying to fly in between drivers licenses due to a medical condition? I don’t have a passport or any other photo ID. This is such a bizarre situation. I’m hoping somebody else may have experienced something similar while waiting for doctor approval for a drivers license? Thanks!
