I assume you are referring to your Z-Card (Merchant Mariner Document) application. You should be able to make the application while your license is under suspension. As long as you have the drivers license in your possession. Most states do not physically take the license. If they did take your actual license you should be able to apply with just the drivers license number. If you don't know this you can obtain it through the DMV.

You will also need to supplement this with your passport, original birth certificate and original Social Security card.

The background check may disqualify you from obtaining a z-card if the offense is bad enough. If that's the case then you are out of luck.

Good luck,
Mike

Don't know what line you are appling to but I know that my grandson is working on getting a job with NCL/America and one of the first things he had to do was send NCL a copy of his driving record.They want that even before you apply for either TWIC or MMD. For NCL a good record is very important. I know that since he does not have any passport he is going to have to use his drivers license as his photo id. He is in the early stages of getting things and Tues he will go for his TWIC.

phillip6781, good luck. My grandson has already been hired of course it does depend on getting the cards and passing the medical exam, which he has set for tomorrow. But none of those should be any problem.

Keep us informeed.
