Unless your friend is due for a test, she can renew her license online. That way is MUCH easier.
Too all those who answered this post and are wondering why I'm making so much of this: check out "YouTube VA DMV'. An independant film maker and his friends went down to DMV wearing the most ridiculous disguises and were given licenses, no questions asked. It was also employees of VA DMV who took bribes and sold ID's to the 9/11 terrorists. You can imagine the criticism they're getting. So now they're playing CYA and giving everybody a hard time. I don't think my friend can afford a real good wig, it will probably look like a wig. At any rate, they've always been crass enough to ask such a question of nice, normal people. Thanks for all the responses! Peanut
Just wear it and dont say anything. Nobody says anything when you dye your hair. How will they know?
I wouldn't say anything to DMV. I can't believe anyone be be crass enought to ask if she is wearing a wig-unless it is green and purple and looks like a Halloween wig!
I don't think I would even mention I have a wig on. I also have lost my hair. I have a wig that is styled and looks very much like my own hair. People often change glasses, weight, hair styles, etc. after their picture is taken so I don't think the wig should even be an issue.
You might want to just walk into your local DMV office and ask in advance, just in case. Your friend would be so upset if they said even one tiny boo, so please get the info for her. That would be my guess. God bless!
For goodness sake, wear the wig and get it done and don't even say anything about it!
Your friend has enough to worry about without sweatin' the small stuff!
What is the other choice? Showing up bald? I would not expect men who wear topees to have to remove them.
What they don't know won't hurt them. Just go, get the license and say nothing. It will be fine. I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Another thought. I can renew my license over the internet and don't have to go to the DMV. They simply send my license with the same picture and a new expiration date.
Bless your friend's heart, I know these are confusing times for her.
I don't know why not. As long as she doesn't cover her face I don't know what difference it would make. People are alwas changing the color of their hair :-) I did and had no problem.
We lived in VA for many years and I agree with you. As to the wig-or-none, I might suggest that your friend goes to the DMV office at the beginning of her renewal month and see if she goes through okay. If not, have her get in writing just what is okay. Personally, if I came across this, I would wear a wig as close to my pre-radiation style and color as possible and say nothing unless asked. Cay from FL (We now live in Green Cove Springs, FL, and the clerks at the DMV are actually glad to see you and be of service! Another "planet" entirely!)
I don't see where this would be a problem. Women and men both, dye and bleach their hair all the time. No one will know if it's her natural hair or a wig. I don't believe anyone would dare ask! I wouldn't bother even trying to ask them anything. Hair color is a choice these days. Would they dare ask a bald man what his hair color used to be, or is that baldness by choice or is it natural? lol
Just wear it and don't mention it is a wig. I seriously doubt anyone will even say anything. they don't ask if you dye your hair.
