Simply bring us your license and/or certificates. Regular driver’s license fees apply.
6) 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.
7) Blood Type Indicator
Ask us about adding your blood type to your driver's license. This is a way to get some extra peace of mind for you or your minor children who drive and there is no additional fee if you are adding it in conjunction with another Driver's License transaction. In the event of an emergency, medical provider's can act fast. This also compliments the Organ Donor indicator and the emergency contact information.
