A friend told me this story, and I didn’t follow up on how long it had been expired, but either way I could totally see this working. I don’t think the people at the DMV aren’t paid enough to really care. But of course I’m the honest person who fills out applications online and sees that I can’t get an easy exchange if the license is too old so of course I volunteered that information before doing anything. I should’ve talked to my friends before going to the DMV.
