Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

EXCLUSIVE

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.

He looks gorgeous. Just because he isn't smiling doesn't mean he's a tortured soul. You expect him to smile every time he gets his picture taken?

Well it is NOT really a surprise he was so sad in that horrible period, after the disgusting lies made up by disgusting people to get his money!!!! NO surprise he was so upset!!! Michael Jackson IS such a pure soul and he would have never ever imagined those disgusting lies against him not even in his worse nightmares!!!! Just wait to see the horrible end of those disgusting people similar to that s***bag hungry for money of Evan Chandler!!! And that'll do it!!!!

Michael Jackson had gone through much by the time of this photograph. And, TMZ, it is people like YOU who tortured him!
