  • That depends on the bar. There are alot of ways to "make" ID's, so alot of places are pretty wary of just letting people in....the liability is on them. We have a liquor store that won't allow anything but a drivers license. They won't even look at a military ID....which is so wrong.

  • My DH didn't get into the bar when he had his paper licences. Although this was after he had his wallet stolen, so he didn't have his license on his anyway.

  • I was a bartender, also. I would let you in with the old one and the paper license. The bigger clubs might give you more of a problem. They have to be very cautious.

  • They should let you in if you bring both the paper and the expired.

  • In Washington the paper license is legal as long as you have the punched one too. My new one only took a week to get to me.
