4) First Time Driver's License
Get Leveled-Up! We can issue a first time Driver's License if you already have a Driver's Permit or Intermediate Driver's License. The Process is simple! Bring your current Driver's Permit or Intermediate License; your "sealed" road skills test results, and if you are under 18 years of age, bring your Certificate of Enrollment from school, birth certificate and your parent or legal guardian with their ID.
5) Driver’s License Emergency Contact
Did you know that if you ask, you can have an emergency contact added to your Driver’s License record? In the event of an accident, a police officer can access emergency contact information using the Driver’s License number if you are unable to communicate. In a separate transaction, a contact name, address, relationship and multiple contact numbers can be added. Add a loved one’s contact information to your Driver's License or add your contact information to your minor child’s Driver’s License. It is a fast and easy transaction that can be completed along with a duplicate, renewal, or change of address. This can also be a stand-alone transaction. Let ABC Title provide you with this additional level of security and peace of mind.
