Fake and/or ID cards and documents that you make are adequate for most activities where you are honest and doing no harm. That includes, renting an apartment, renting a mail or P.O. Box, opening a non-interest checking account, buying a debit card, and writing a check for small amounts when the money is in the bank.
However, I would not use a fake driver license for driving. That is honest too and it is your right. However, governments don't see it that way and they can do you great harm. If a policeman stops you and just takes a quick look at the ID, it probably will be okay. However, that minor benefit does not warrant the risk and high penalties.
Rather than present a fake ID, if stopped by a policeman when driving, it would be better not to have an ID. For that government will fine you a few hundred dollars and possibly jail you for a day or two. However, the government agents will go ballistic if you present a fake ID.
Normally, when your activities involve the government, you need a driver license or ID issued by the state. You may be able to use fake and acquired identification documents to obtain a driver license, but don't drive without a state issued driver license and, in any case, don't present a fake ID if stopped by a policeman.
I have checked almost every state, including states that should know better such as Alaska, New Hampshire, and Wyoming, and almost every state requires a SSN or a letter from the Social Security Administration before they will issue a driver license. Also typically, before they will issue a SSN, the Social Security Administration will want the original or certified copy of your birth certificate and a driver license to prove your identity.
It is like a Catch-22. The Social Security Administration wants your driver license before they issue a social security card and SSN, and all the states insist on a social security card or SSN before they will issue a driver license. However, the Social Security Administration may accept a college ID card for Identification and that is easy to obtain.
If you are an employer, it just takes a few seconds to verify with the Social Security Administration a SSN, name, and date of birth. Therefore, if you use as SSN, the name and date of birth you provide must match the records with the Social Security Administration.
Finding a valid SSN, name, and date of birth for a live person under forty is very difficult. On the internet, you can find a few if you Google the following and include the quotation marks and include the "-" or else you will get too many sites containing the words died, death, and navy: "SSN: ###-" DOB -died -death -navy where ### is the first three digits of a SSN. Even then, many of the numbers found are fakes and most of the others are people convicted of a crime or where someone is attempting to find them for child support.
