NOTE: Customers are encouraged to use this checklist to prepare in advance of visiting a Deputy Registrar agency. Use of this checklist does not guarantee issuance of a DL-ID. Issuance will be based on the validity and acceptance of actual documents presented at the time of the transaction. All non-renewable, non-transferable credentials will be issued as Standard DL-ID.
