If I get my license renewed before I'm 21, I can't purchase alcohol right? Or can I?!

Question: If I get my license renewed before I'm 21, I can't purchase alcohol right!? Or can I!?
Hey guys! I turn 21 this Friday and Ohio allows residents to renew their license one month prior to when they MUST get it renewed!. So I'm just curious if this new ID will allow me to get into bars and purchase alcohol!. I'm not 21 until Friday!. Thanks! : DWww@FoodAQ@Com

Nope!. I live in Ohio too, and got mine a few days before hand!. It will still expire on your birthday in four years, however they do put a Red Under 21 until (Insert your birthday here) That's the only difference though!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Had mine done 2 days before my b-dayWww@FoodAQ@Com

not unless they change your birthdate on the license!

I'd advise to get your ID renewed *AFTER* your 21st birthday, that way it doesn't say 'after 21 until' or whatever Ohio's says!.

and frankly, alcohol kills brain cells, it seems from your question that you maybe don't have too many to spare, so abstinence (not drinking) might be right for you!! :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

No it's not going to help you!. I think we do the verticle set up for under 21 right!? If you renew early, you still get that same funky set up which is a red flag to bartenders to look at the age!.

On the other hand if you wait until after your birthday, you can get a normal looking one!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You should be fine, as they should look at the birthdate and not the style of license when determining if you're legal!. For those who didn't know, many states assign a different looking license style to those underage!.

If they are giving you trouble about it, just make them check the birthdate and tell them the situation!. But I doubt you'll get any questions!.

Happy 21st!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Bar tenders look at the date of birth!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Be honest!. You thought you would get a new birthday, didn't you!?
