Answer Man: When you renew a Missouri driver’s license why do you again have to show your Social Security card and birth certificate? Both of them are scanned — again! I could understand verification of my address. But my birth certificate and Social Security card haven’t changed and are already in the system. It seems this process could/should be streamlined to require only address information and my driver’s license. — Sara Jean Peters, Collins

When I received this email back in July the first thing I wondered was: Where the heck is Collins?

Well, it’s 53 miles north of Springfield along Highway 13 in St. Clair County.

Sara seemed stunned I had not heard of her hometown.

“You’ve never heard of Smith’s Restaurant? Home of the giant tenderloin? Oh, you poor man!”

Now I know. 

On to her question. 

I contacted Michelle Hirschman, a spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Revenue, which oversees the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles.

She started her answer by talking about REAL ID. Apparently, an understanding of REAL ID is crucial to getting Sara an answer. It’s also crucial, I’ve learned in reporting this story, if you plan to fly on an airplane starting Oct. 1, 2021, and beyond.

Maybe I once knew what REAL ID was — like I once knew how to conjugate Spanish verbs.
