Vt. Real ID driver's licenses available Thursday

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A new kind of driver's license and non-driver's identification is now available at offices of the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles.

Starting Thursday, Vermonters will be able to obtain Real ID compliant identification in person at all motor vehicles offices.

Motor Vehicle Commissioner Robert Ide says licenses are no longer just for driving and residents increasingly rely on these documents as proof of identity in their everyday lives.

To get a Real ID, people will need an original or certified copy of their birth certificate or other proof of identity, and proof of U.S. citizenship or lawful presence in the United States. People will also need proof of their Social Security numbers.
