You must take your RI Driver's license photo at the DMV office. When you take your photo, you should make sure that you wear what you would wear normally. It's extremely important that your face is clearly shown and recognizable. Look straight at the camera and do not smile, as a resting face is easier to identify.
Absolutely. You can contact the RI DMV by calling (401-462-4368). You may be able to visit the DMV office in person. You can find a list of locations, hours and numbers by visiting this website: http://www.dmv.ri.gov/locations/index.php#1
