I got my driver’s license today!!!

So I have a huge amount of anxiety surrounding cars, multi-faceted and in-depth anxiety. Because of it, I got my learner’s permit 5 years ago but didn’t actually start learning to drive until 2ish years ago. But I told myself, way back in High School when I realized that I couldn’t get into the driver’s seat of a car without having a panic attack, that I would get my license by the time I graduated college. AND I DID IT! As of 1:30pm today, I have my driver’s license!! It’s been a rough process and I’ve had to grapple with a lot of my anxiety, but I passed and I did it and I’m so proud of myself for doing that. And I’m so thankful to my friends who helped me do it–for supporting me and driving with me and for just being amazing. It took 5 years, but I did it before graduation!

So I just got a new drivers license around the same time I started transitioning. It won't be renewed for 6 years and I'm wondering-if my appearance changes so the license photo isn't recognizable as me, could that be a problem??? Texas if that matters.

Yes, I think that could potentially be a problem if you were pulled over while driving! If you do change enough to cause potential questions, you should go to the DMV or AAA near you to ask about getting an updated photo.
