6 Point ID Verification
In order to obtain licenses and permits at MVC, you are required to pass the 6 Point ID Verification. This procedure was designed to help prevent identity theft by ensuring that all licenses are distributed accurately with proper legal documents and verification.
- You must prove that your presence in the country is authorized under federal law
- Your application will only be accepted when the proper documents are presented. Any false or invalid documents will also be refused
- If your name does not match that on your birth certificate, you must provide alternative documentation for the name change (i.e. marriage certificate)
- This requires you to prepare information prior to visiting an MVC Agency, possibly resulting in special document requests from other state agencies
This 6 Point ID Verification Program assigns a point value to each type of document, requiring you to have a total of six points for proper verification. We have provided a guide that will help you conveniently pick the proper documents with enough points.
Note: If you have a birth certificate from another US territory, such as Puerto Rico, it must be printed in English or translated by an approved translator.
