Documents Needed For a Driver License

If you want to drive legally in Wyoming, you must have a valid Wyoming Driver’s License. All the drivers have to take a driving test exam as well as a knowledge test. The licensure process also includes documents that you have to submit to the local DMV.

Application Process

In case you have never applied to the DMV office before or are a new U.S citizen you should take the following steps:
First of all, present your proof of identity.
The state defines “The proof of identity” as the following papers:
  • Birth Certificate
  • Valid Passport
  • Birth Abroad Consular Report
  • Permanent Resident Card
  • Citizenship Certificatev
  • Residency ID
Secondly, provide your current residence address verification. (there should be two)
Your name and current physical address must be included in the paperwork. A parent/guardian may offer proof of residence in the parent/name guardian's for a minor kid. Documents must be no older than a month.
Thirdly, you need to show your SSN.
You may present a bank statement that includes your Social Security Number, W-2 form, or Social Security Card.
Finally, if you have made a name change, present a change order. To provide your name changes submit a marriage certificate, divorce decree, or any other state-issued document showing you’ve changed your name.
The documents required for a DL and a state identification card are the same.
After submitting all these papers, you are asked to be photographed and may be required to undergo a written or road test. You should have access to a vehicle in order to take the exam, and it must be the same class of vehicle as to the one you will be certified to drive.

  • Georgia
  • Michigan
  • Massachusetts
