Proof of address or social security number now required for state driver license
In an effort to reduce the number of fraudulent drivers licenses in the state, the Washington Department of Licensing is now requiring drivers to produce additional identification. For anyone who doesn’t give their social security number, residents will have to provide items, such as a utility bill, mail from the bank to prove where they live.
“This is another in a series of steps we’ve taken to clamp down on license fraud and ensure that people are Washington residents if they’re getting a license,” said DOL director Liz Luce in a press release.
A full list of possible documents is on the Department of Licensing Web site at www.dol.wa.gov.
