Getting a photo taken at the DMV is something, isn't it? The rushed process involves terrible lighting, zero opportunities to fix your hair, and hardly any opportunities for a second try.
That explains why there are so many bad driver's license pictures. Some driver's licenses are funny, to be fair, because someone was trying to pull off a hilarious prank on us.
We can learn from this that although the lines at the DMV can be long and mind-numbing and the paperwork tedious, it's okay to laugh at yourself once in a while.
After all, most people will admit that they never look good in their ID photos, but obviously, a few have stood out as meme-worthy. It seems like these people went the extra mile to look as hilarious as possible while getting their driver's license photos taken.
1. Seems Very Genuine
This is a very badly made fake driver's license. That name does not help things, whether it's real or not.
2. The Sneeze
We are not sure what happened here, but it seems like the guy sneezed while his photo was being taken. They still couldn't give him another chance, creating one of the most hilarious driver's license photos ever.
3. It's Still Qualifies As A Smile
Not everyone is meant to smile. So, give this guy a break. Yes, the smile looks a bit creepy, but it's a smile nonetheless.
4. Funny Hairstyle
They don't ask many questions at the DMV, which is why some people get away with some pretty hilarious hairstyles. Check out this guy.
5. Had To Cut The Salon Appointment Short
It seems like this lady was at the salon in the middle of getting her hair done when she decided to pop in at the DMV to have her driver's license photo taken. She still has the curlers in her hair.
6. Dumb Fake Driving License
We know some people use fake IDs. However, using a celebrity's photo on your fake driving license is probably not the best move.
In any case, Justin Bieber doesn't look like that anymore.
7. Should Have Checked Into A Barber Shop First
The handlebar mustache and the bushy beard make for a truly unflattering driver's license photo.
8. Expiring Tomorrow
This one has a good sense of humor. We are not sure who was going to take this driver's license seriously.
For one, the guy is wearing a sombrero, claims to be from Mexifornia, and indicates that he is entitled to drink and drive and purchase guns. Don't forget that the license is supposed to expire "tomorrow."
9. Together Forever
Most couples can't bear being apart from each other for more than a couple of minutes. However, this might have crossed the line.
10. Brace Yourself
Clearly, nothing gets this driver down. Even though he is wearing a neck brace, he seems to be in the best spirits.
11. A Proud Family Tradition
The family is in the habit of outdoing each other by trying to have the most hilarious driver's license photos.
12. The Superhero
If we started going through all the funny names in the world, it would take forever. However, as far as hilarious names that appear on driver's licenses go, Batman bin Suparman has few equals.
Was he getting the license to drive a Batmobile? It would be disappointing if he wasn't.
13. The Damn Fly!
You would think having bugs land on your face should be the last thing you have to worry about when having your driver's license picture taken, but this man proved us wrong.
14. Definitely Needed To Update His Look
Hopefully, the DMV employee noticed an improvement in this man's hygiene.
Apparently, the Jono Zalay tries to look completely different in every driver's license photo he takes.
15. How Did She Find Her Way?
This fake driver's license is in a league of its own. I can't help but wonder how things will go whenever she is pulled over.
16. To Shave, Or Not To Shave?
Doesn't seem like he had an easy time deciding whether to keep the facial hair or lose it.
17. A Pope?
A driving license of a "regular-aged pope." And yes, That's Jude Law.
18. Did You Notice That
The man is wearing a colander, but it looks a lot like a hat. Not sure how he got away with that, considering that they won't even allow drivers to wear hats.
19. A Pastafarian's Driver's License
This driver decided to get a driver's license picture while wearing a colander hat. It's a religious thing.
20. Child Driver
Be honest. Does that girl look a day over 5?
When making a fake ID, it's definitely a very bad idea to use a photo from when you were not even qualified to drive.
21. Not A Common Look
This man took a driver's license photo with a pretty weird look on his face.
22. He Had To Make A Point
Let's not discuss the age of the boy for now and whether or not he is even qualified to drive. Seriously, what's with that shirt?
23. Hilarious Magnification Effect
Although this was a perfect picture, it was made to look incredibly ridiculous by that unfortunate magnification effect.
24. Special Hairstyle
Once again, a guy could not decide if to keep the hair or to shave it off. He wanted the best of both worlds.
25. The Worst Luck
He was probably hoping the next photo would be better. Clearly, he was wrong.
26. "Hey, How's The Going?"
This man managed to get his photo taken with a sly smile on his face. Maybe it has something to do with his half-shaven beard.
27. Hey, It's Me!
Getting a photo taken was not enough attention for this man. He felt the need to speak out and draw more attention to himself.
28. Nothing To Laugh About
You don't get a lot of smiles at the DMV, and that's understandable. However, this man looks especially frustrated with the process.
29. Didn't Expect To See That
There is nothing wrong with the photo, but what's that written below her name?
30. A DMV Troll
This man from Indiana is a legend for trolling the DMV with his hilarious pictures. Hard to believe it worked!
These unusual driver's license pictures prove that DMV can be a little fun if you are willing to overlook the long lines and the paperwork.
