Exclamation See your drivers licence online - and remove it!.

It turns out you can check for your Driver's License on the internet . . and remove it! Anyone's Driver's License is available to view on the Internet which is a pain!

I removed mine!

Go to http://www.license.shorturl.com

I just did mine - I hate it when they leave stuff like that for everyone to see.

i was really shocked that they can do this, but i'm glad you can remove it.
This is a serious problem, because it would be really easy for some people to disguise themselves as me after they see the picture, and to get money from my bank account (only one example of many). Actually there are many places that sell disguises like this.

How do we know this site is kosher and not just a vehicle for collecting sensitive information?

Everything about the site shouts fake! There is no "About us" (nothing to find out who is running it), the name of the bureau looks made up and sounds highly unlikely, there are no other links to any other part of the site ...

Where it says "The United States B.S. amendment to the Freedom of Information Act ...", what do you think "B.S." stands for? (That's a rhetorical question, BTW)

Do a google search for the name of the bureau "National Motor Vehicle License Bureau" and you will find this link: http://urbanlegends.about.com/librar...erslicense.htm
