All to often when older people stop driving they let their drivers license expire so they are left without any identification. This poses a problem when they need to present valid ID, such as when they need a document notarized.
A simple solution is to get a California Senior Citizen ID card. The IDs are good for ten years and if the senior is bed bound the DMV will send someone out to their home.
To obtain a Senior Citizen ID card you will need:
Form DL 44 which can be mailed to you by calling the DMV at 800-777-0133
A birth certificate or other acceptable document
Provide your social security number
Your full legal name
The Senior Citizen ID card is free if your are 62 or older.
