Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

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.

It's hard to remember he looked so normal and good looking at one point before he started jacking up his face.

ah, this is not a valid anything. michael left the country end of june after trial, that's a fact. secondly, nothing valid on this, weight, height, signature, this isn't anything, looks photoshopped to me. Also, MJ was incredibly thin after the trial, this was not his face at that time. TMZ you suck. Why you showing this now, wasn't it Michael Joseph Jackson who died, not Michael Joe Jackson, is that what you're trying to show us here. Also, who provided TMZ with this fake license?

My driver's license photo looks much the same, it's against DMV rules to smile. If you give even a hint of a smile, they make you retake. Making news where there is none.
