I ordered and just received a double id wallet from Wallet Gear. This wallet required me to still trim part of the license (hopefully that is still GTG). I assume that it'll be really rare that I need to ever present it. If I do, it will be right there with my ID...or just simply is if I ever get stopped by LEO for any reason and asked for my ID.

http://www.walletgear.com/id-holders...d-holders.html

Maybe others have suggestions that do not require trimming, but I want something more compact (pretty thin) so am pleased with this one.

For my driver's license, I needed to put my primary go to credit cards behind it to make it snug since it is a bit small for the LTC but much larger than my driver's license.

The BigSkinny wallets are the best wallets around! They are really thin and fit everything in it. I am amazed with this thing. I purchased two of the leather bi-folds a couple years ago and I am still on my first one. Great quality and it stays very skinny due to the design.

I had to spend a unpleasant day at the mall shopping for one. I wish Sac County would join the 21 century and make credit card style CCWs like most other states have. Good luck your options are slim.

You absolutely should not carry your CCW license in anything other than a genuine, American made, leather, Tactical wallet specifically made and marketed to hold the grand treasure that is your license........

Option #2 is to just tuck it in your regular wallet behind your drivers license.

Personally, I go with option #2.

Most bi-folds will work.

I use this one from Tony Perotti Leather

http://www.tonyperottiusa.com/produc...D.-Window.html

Fold the license in half and laminate. Slide into large inside pocket of wallet near the fold.

I was able to find a bifold wallet at Wally's World not the best looking but the Sac County Permit slides right in with no trimming. Cost was about 25 bucks. Again not the best looking but it works.

Me, too. Seems to work just fine. Of course, if it's important to you display it, then option #2 doesn't work for that.

It isn't the county that is responsible for the size of the permit. The form used is the standard California DOJ BOF form. My understanding is that this is the "legal" form for issue. It would be a bit expensive to have all the agencies get a printer for the credit card style of permit. If the permits were issued directly at the state level, then there might be cost savings to moving to a new permit style. Unfortunately, they'd probably also have the company who prints the California Driver's License doing it (and you've heard about the delays they've had recently).

Put my original on the printer, printed at 80%, fold in half and laminate.
It is the same size as a credit card. I have 4 or 5 copies, one next to CDL one in briefcase and one at the office. I keep my original in the safe.

That is a great idea, I wonder if that's acceptable.

Sweet!

I don't get it with all the questions. Mine fits inside the cash section of the wallet I've been using for 10 years. A standard double fold that holds like 6 credit card on one side and a few more plus DL on the other.

I guess if you carry a little boys wallet it won't fit, though. LOL
