Enhanced License Now Available


WASHINGTON -- Enhanced driver's licenses and I.D. cards will be available to Washington State residents starting Tuesday.

The new licenses will act as proof of identity and proof of citizenship, the two forms of identification that will be required in order to cross the Canadian or Mexican border as of January 31st.

The first step to getting an enhanced license is scheduling an appointment. The documents you will need are proof of residency, citizenship, and photo identification.

If you already have a Washington State license, you won't need to pass a vision screening. However, you will have to pass an interview with a licensing representative.

The enhanced license costs $15.
