Alicen and Alicia Kennedy are used to people getting them confused. What the 15-year-old twins from Evans, Georgia were not expecting though, was the Department of Motor Vehicles denying them a permit because they were too much alike.
This happened when the twins went to get their learners’ permits. Both were taking their photos without glasses, and because their names, initials, date of birth and even social security numbers were so similar, the department’s system flagged them as frauds, the agency confirmed.
The girls told ABC News that DMV officers in Evans told them they had been blocked from the system for a week.
“We were scared we were not going to get it,” said Alicia. “It was kind of a letdown because we were working really hard studying to get our permit and start driving next year.”
