Don't come to Mississippi expecting to get a driver's license without a birth certificate.
I was born at home in a small town in New Hampshire. My aunt Florance delivered me.
I served in the Navy during the Korean War and then spent more than 30 years in the Merchant Marine. I had a driver's license from the age of 16 until 80 (yesterday).
All this without a birth certificate. For identification, I have a passport, military discharge, merchant marine documents, a prior license, a marriage license, etc.
But nothing I have is good enough for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. I must provide a birth certificate even though I have never had one.
If a person could serve in the military without a birth certificate, one should be able to drive, especially with a prior license.
