Michael had been pressuring his parents to get his driver’s license as soon as he turned 16. He had worked hard at school to maintain decent grades, participated in various social activities, played sports, and still had time for a part time job. He really needed his license, as it would help take the burden off his parents of having to shuttle him to and from afterschool events, games, and his job.
His parents insisted he complete driver’s education training, so he could have some experience on the road before getting his learner’s permit and driver’s license. When Michael and his mom went to sign him up for driver’s education, they discovered at some point they would need Michael’s birth certificate in order for him to obtain his learner’s permit and driver’s license.
Initially, his mom was pretty sure she knew where his birth certificate was located, since she kept all important papers in a secure lock box at their local bank. Michael’s mom said she would try to fit in a trip to the bank during her work week, in between Michael’s events and games, so they would have it at home and easily accessible.
Later that week, Michael was excited and eagerly anticipated his mom’s arrival home because today was the day she was stopping by the bank to get his birth certificate from the lock box. Unfortunately, when his mom arrived home, she did not have his birth certificate. It was not in the lock box, and she had carefully gone through everything inside the box several times.
Michael was devastated, as it meant even if he completed driver’s education, he would not be able to get his learner’s permit, let alone his license, without his birth certificate. While his mom consulted with his dad to see if they might have inadvertently placed it somewhere else, Michael got online and started researching what he would need to get a copy of his birth certificate.
At first he was still worried, because it looked like he needed a driver’s license, state issued ID card, or passport to obtain a copy of his birth certificate, which he did not have. After some additional searching, he came across Fast Birth Certificates. He discovered it was possible to order a new birth certificate online, and all he needed to do was have one of his parents order the birth certificate and supply a copy of their ID.
Michael was elated, and went to tell his parents the good news, as his dad had also had no idea where his birth certificate had gotten placed. He sat down with his parents, and they submitted the order for Michael’s birth certificate and opted for expedited processing so Michael would have his birth certificate in a short while, with plenty of time before he would need it to get his learner’s permit.
