What does a Ottowa driver's license look like? Or more specifically, Joe's. I just want to know the layout and colors used. It's for a drawing I want to do.
Thanks!

Kay-riste. You Canucks actually get half-decent looking licenses? Down here in Pennsylvannia (never thought I'd be saying *that*!) we have licenses that look like... well, burocratic forms with holographic security. Boring as hell.<P>I still want one, though. :-)<P>------------------

My Philosophy teacher from last semester is collecting students' old school ID cards (they replace them every year), and a couple driver's licenses have gotten into the mix. He's got probably 25 or 30 cards total taped to the wall of his portable... It's quite interesting.

Just a small warning... be as general as possible, or simply make something up. Most governments don't like people making replicas of official documents, no matter how harmless you think it might be. Here's one example:

I could describe what mine looked like, but I figured I'd do a google search first... and yep, some idiot scanned his in for the world to see.

But then, America is the only country who hasn't conformed to the metric system. (Yay miles and pounds!) <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">
