How to Get your State Identification Card

In the current world, the proof of identification is as important as one’s self and without one, it is very hard to get anything done. One must possess an official document that can identify him or her and prove who that person is.

For this purpose, all states in the US offer drivers licenses as well as identity cards in case you do not drive or not looking for one at this point in time. The procedure is pretty basic and you can get one made within a couple of hours. It will reach you in 4-5 days in mail.

    Be Eligible

    You must be eligible to hold the identity in the first place. Generally you should be at least 18 years of age, should be living in the state and be a citizen or permanent resident of US or have a valid visa that allows you to acquire a state identity card.

    You should not have a driver’s license from the state since it will make you ineligible for a state ID and you will need to surrender the driver’s license in order to get the ID.
