Jay,

Can you help? Went to get driver’s license with the star, was told to bring the following: Birth certificate, social security card, marriage license, two copies of the top page of my checking account statement, one copy of the top page of a credit card statement in my name, and my driver’s license. With all the identity theft going on, this is a good way to get our information.

I was born in the United States, why all the hassle? Is everyone going to have all this information, or just a few? Everyone I talk to says no way are we going to Burley, will go to Rupert. Is Idaho the only state who has the star?

Editors Note: As of October 1, 2020, every US adult will need to show a Real ID-compliant driver’s license to fly within the United States or access federal buildings, including military bases. In Idaho, this is the Star Card (Basically a star in the corner of your driver’s license). To get the Star Card you will need to present documents to prove (1) your identity and date of birth (2) Social Security number and (3) Idaho residency and current residential address. If you choose not to get a Star Card you can still drive with your regular driver’s license but will need some other form of ID to fly and to access federal buildings. You can go online at https://itd.idaho.gov/starcard or to the DMV for more information.
