SERVICE UPDATE: As DMV transitions to a new, online-only appointment system for road tests, DMV will stop taking road test appointments on October 21 and October 23, and will resume October 24 with its new convenient online system. See more information here.
It is illegal in Connecticut to possess, obtain or procure a fake or fraudulent driver's license or state ID card.
If you have previously obtained a driverís license, learnerís permit or non-driver ID card under a fraudulent or fake name, date of birth, or social security number other than your own, you must do the following:
- Contact DMV's Document Integrity Unit at (860) 263-5331 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Schedule a meeting with a DMV staff member.
- Provide documents to prove your identity.
- Surrender the fake or fraudulent driver's license, learner's permit, or non-driver identification card.
At this meeting you will be offered the option of having a hearing or you may agree to sign a stipulated settlement and pay a fee of $175 (check or money order, no cash will be accepted).
Normal processing time is 10 business days from the date DMV's Document Integrity Unit receives the signed agreement and restoration fee.
All suspensions must be cleared before your driving privilege will be restored.
The restoration notice will be mailed to your Connecticut address.
If you fail to comply with the requirements above before you apply for a driver's license, ID card, or a Drive Only license, DMV's Document Integrity Unit will find the other identities you have held and will revoke all licenses or ID cards.
