Yes, it sucks. I am from Texas and I finished my drivers ed the night before my birthday, and all excited went to the DMV after school. Upon arrival I took my test and passed, and was ready for my permit. They asked for my birth certificate and my mother gave it to them. It was in the bag right? No. I find out that Coloradians hate Texas and I have my City of Austin Birth Certificate, but we need the state of texas birth certificate. WHAT? I wasn't even born in Austin, I was born in Lubbock. What the heck? That is ridiculous, and it took three months for my state certified ***** certificate to get to my house! THREE! I figure they delivered it on foot. So now, one year later, I have my car, drove it for the first time today, and I have to wait until February 26.

So my question for you, any way around this? That is LEGAL? Probably not, please comment either way.

Dunno, it was just issued by the City of Austin, and I have used it for everything before this, it is weird. We most likely got it when we lived in Austin for a few years.

OK, so you have your permit, not a license right? We're from Texas too and went through something similar with my son. Found out the City of San Antonio birth certificate was no good and needed the State issued certificate. I don't know why it took so long for you to get yours, my son's arrived within 2 weeks of ordering it. Also, here in Colorado you don't automatically get your license when you turn 16. You're required to hold your permit for a minimum of one year, so it depends on when you first received your permit in Texas. If you got your Texas permit last February 26, then you must wait until February 26 of this year to receive your CO issued license.

I seriously doubt this has anything to do with "hating" Texas....I'm guessing city issued birth certs (from ANY state) are not used. I know you're 16 and disappointed but don't get into the habit of being overly dramatic about things. It's not a positive quality to hang onto as you get older.

It is probably not an "official" birth certificate. They are just being careful, it sounds like to me.

No, actually they are quite "official". They're just not a state issued certificate. Anyone born in Texas is issued a certifcation of vital record from the city health district in which they were born. They work just fine for anything you need a birth certificate for in Texas, they just don't work outside of Texas

Thanks for the clarification.
