When you have any encounter with an officer, even if you aren't driving, you must show both the handgun license a DL with the same number printed on it as shown on the face of the handgun license.
This can in some circumstances be a bit of a nuisance, or even impossible.
I'm always suprised to hear that some states don't have photos on their handgun liscence. It seems to me that if someone is carrying you would want to be absolutely certain they were who they said.Whats the reasoning behind that, cost efficiency, I'm sure it would make the leo's job easier as well.

Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
I Utah we do have a picture on our CFP. It is also a legal ID, I would get a hold of there corp. offices in Salt Lake and complain. The only time I use mine is when I buy a new weapon.

If you mother did not have a DL because she doesn't drive, she can get a state issued ID card from the department of motor vehicles (at least that's true in Virginia). It looks just about like a DL but it's not.
When I was on active duty my Florida driver's license did not have a picture or signature. Where the picture was were the words "Valid without picture or signature". The Department of Motor Vehicles sent it to me when my license expired.
Many times when going to cash a check the store would not accept my military ID which had a picture and signature. But they would accept the Florida license with no picture or signature. I remember asking one time how they knew that was my license. The young girl at the checkout said, "Because you gave it to me." :)

This will vary no doubt from state to state.
But ignorance is everywhere.
Many years ago I overheard a conversation with a woman and a clerk in a large department store. She wanted to pay with AMEX Travelers Checks and "all" she had for ID was her Passport. Clerk told her that a Passport wasn't a valid ID and no sale unless she had a DL with her.
I think it is written somewhere in Ohios law that it is NOT a valid form of ID.
This is mine. That is yours.
Lets keep it that way.
Its not about guns...Its about Freedom!

I disagree... there are many who do not have a DL - but do have a state-issued ID or a military ID (never heard of any place not accepting a military ID). So long as it is considered proper ID by the state, it is proper ID for any other legal requirement. I would have taken this up the chain and gotten it resolved. The computers will recognize many different forms for this specific reason.

A couple of years ago, I had to stop by a bank to get myself added as a signer on a non-profit's bank account.
When I got there, I was told I had to show two ID's with my current address on them and at least one of them had to have a picture ID.
VA drivers license had both address and picture. The only other ID I had with my address on it was my VA CCW.
I would rather not have used it, but I didn't want to make a second trip to the bank so I used the CCW.
Worked out fine. Two tellers even started a discussion with me about how they could get a permit.
It's all good!
