Enhanced Driver’s License Available Today

16 Sep

Kathy Hochul’s clerk’s office has the coveted citizenship-proving-licenses starting today. You can get the information here on how to apply. (.pdf) If your license is up for renewal, it will cost $80. If it isn’t up for renewal, it will cost $40. You’ll need to bring proof of citizenship, your existing license, a social security card, and two additional pieces of identifying documents such as two current recurring bills.

    So this does what? Get me into Canada? If you have a passport, why do you need this?

    Yes, it gets you into Canada. And back out. Something other than a regular driver’s license will be required starting, I believe, in June. If you have a valid passport, you don’t need this. A (somewhat) cheaper, (hopefully) quicker alternative for those who don’t need or want a passport.

    Depending on what happens early November, I might not want to come back! Thanks, Steve.

    Canada’s always looking for immigrants, buffalomom. Adieu!

    I would recomend just spending the extra cash on the passport. You get more bang for your buck, travel anywhere (except Cuba). Hank’s still trolling I see.
