I was taking an exam for a real estate related license today at a Person VUE center. They are VERY strict about security including making you empty your pockets and store stuff in a locker as well as checking eye glasses for any attachments such as cameras. You have to be escorted to your seat and cannot leave until someone gets you if they see your hand raised.

I presented my CWP as a second form of ID and the two clerks had to check with another and they said that recently the CWP was no longer allowed as a valid form of ID. thankfully a mere credit card was accepted and I got to take the test.

Yep. I forget where / who it was (years ago). But, I was asked for a 2nd form of PHOTO ID. I presented my CCW. Rejected. Not acceptable. A state-issued photo ID rejected. I ended up using a CC / Debit card, I think (with no photo, mind you). Besides CCW, who has TWO forms of photo ID??? Whatever!

I did a bit of a 'bums rush' at a Wells Fargo a year ago when the bank manager was very anti 2A and let it show.

I ran into that with some kind of certification test. Wasn't valid but I think a credit / debit card was. Whatever?

I've since got a US Passport card that I carry and leave the passport in the safe at home. Not that I've needed it much for a second ID.

I also got a passport card. Use it instead of my DL at stores because it doesn't have my addy on it

Don't these people know what you have to go through to get a LTC ID. My wife worked in a bank and would always take a LTC for second ID, she knew exactly what had to be done to get that card. Drivers license can be forged and a lot of them are.

A CWFL should be the best ID on the planet.

For years banks would not accept a FL CWFL as a second form of ID.
Most now do.
I still chuckle though when I see things like this where a CC, one of the easiest things to get is accepted yet a state issued ID that one has to be fingerprinted and go thru a background check to get isn’t. It’s just ignorance on their part.

But does the carry license meet the requirements under the new ID laws?

Whose Drivers license has a little star and says I'm a veteran.
As a secondary form if ID does NOT have the same requirements as one's primary ID. Hence, the acceptance of a credit card, debit card or a Blockbuster card. Types of secondary forms are subjective to the agency accepting them.

This is nothing new.. Many years ago when I was a young LEO, I wanted to pay for something with a check at a large retail store. They wanted two forms of I.d.. I showed my drivers license and my police I.D., it had my picture on it. They would not accept it, stating anyone could get one of those. I showed a credit card as the second form and they accepted that.
People who are not familiar with ccw and other I.D. just don't know or are told this is the only forms of I.D. acceptable.

Did she get a "True ID" drivers license???
I think a lot of people need to read the rules re TSA legal ID's eff. Oct 2020.
The MVB has been sending out flyers on the subject for years.

For the sake of discussion, your FLCWFL is good-to-go for voting in Florida.

When voting early or voting at a polling place, Florida law requires voters to present a picture ID with signature. Acceptable forms of ID are:

  • Florida driver's license (quickest ID to process)
  • Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (quickest ID to process)
  • United States passport
  • Debit or credit card
  • Military identification
  • Student identification
  • Retirement center identification
  • Neighborhood Association identification
  • Public Assistance identification
  • Veteran Health Identification card issued by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs
  • License to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to s. 790.06
  • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality
ID required and checked at the polls is used solely to confirm the voter’s identity, not to verify the voter’s ID number or address. The photograph on the ID is compared to the person standing before the Election Day Worker and the signature on the ID is compared to the signature on record.If the voter’s picture ID does not contain a signature, an additional document with signature may be used.
