(NBC)  Michelle Dalton would love to drive her Volvo to the store and back, but she doesn't have a new driver's license.

"I take medication, I can't go pick it up myself," said Dalton. "I have to have somebody go with me because I don't have a driver's license."

She doesn't have a Florida driver's license because the state told her she doesn't have the proper documents for renewal, she claims she does. 

"This adoption certificate was the one I used originally in 1982 to get my Florida's driver's license," said Dalton.

Dalton said the same Georgia adoption certificate she used in 1982 and again in 2005 is not good enough in 2013 according to the DMV.

"They will not accept my adoption certificate from 1973 because they say it doesn't have a seal on it," she said.

She has the documents required since 2010, a birth certificate from Mississippi, a marriage license from Las Vegas, her adoption certificate from Georgia and proof of Florida residency, but she said the answer is the same.

"No, the answer was no," said Dalton, "with everyone I encountered."
