Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

12/24/2012 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the last driver's license photo Michael Jackson ever took -- a big change from the singer's cheery license photo from the 1980s.

The latest photo was taken in 2005 -- four years before the King of Pop's untimely death -- and you can tell from the harrowing image ... MJ had become a tortured soul.

An image of MJ's 1980s driver's license was released by the FBI shortly after Michael died -- as part of the agency's massive file on the singer. The Bureau compiled the dossier during its investigation into child sex allegations involving the singer back in the 90s.

As you can see, Michael was a much different person back then -- smiling brightly for his photo at the DMV.

Of course, it's not like MJ ever put the license to much use -- he was pretty much exclusively chauffeured around, especially in the later years of his life.

Tell me, do they really allow people to wear a wig, and a plastic nose?

I thought you weren't even allow to wear any head wear or disguise for driver's licence.

How do they identify the body if he got into an accident when his wig and nose flew off???

What surprised me was that even back on his 1985 license he was 5'9" and only weighed 120 lbs. On his 2006 license you can see how much damage had been done to his skin over the years. Poor tortured soul. I believe he is now in Heaven and is perfect in every way.

Thanks for this Christmas gift Harvey.
It looks like one of those shrunken heads.
Didn't his surgeons know anything about symmetry?
Maybe he looks so depressed because there was no one there under the age of 15.

In all seriousness I'm surprised the allowed him to cover his face so much.

Time for the delusional rabid stuperfans to comment on how beautiful a "man" he was.
I was kind of hoping CA listed race on their licenses.
