Even if you don’t have a driver’s license, you will still need to have a photo ID that you can use to prove your identity in certain situations. There are many different types of photo IDs available. One of the easiest and least expensive to get, however, is a state ID card. These cards look almost exactly like a driver’s license. However, they are issued solely for the purpose of proving your identity.
Getting a state ID card in Georgia is fairly simple. The hardest part is making sure that you have all of the documentation that is required to prove your identity when you apply for the card. There are strict requirements in place regarding what documents will be accepted as proof of your identity during the application process.
One option is to prove your identity using a passport. If you don’t have a passport, you can also use your birth certificate. The key thing to remember with a birth certificate is that it has to be the original – not a copy. The only exception is if the copy is certified or if it can be verified with a hospital in the state of Georgia.
You will also need to provide proof of your Social Security number. Typically, the easiest way to do this is by presenting your Social Security card. There are several other options available, however, if you don’t have access to your Social Security card. You can learn more about these options on the website of the Georgia Department of Driver Services (GDDS).
Finally, you also have to provide proof of your current address. You can do this with a current utility bill in your name, a recent bank statement, a paycheck stub, or documentation from your health insurance company. Other types of proof may be acceptable. Again, you can check the GDDS website for more information on what types of documentation are accepted.
Getting a state ID card in Georgia requires you to prove your identity. You will need to bring certain types of documentation along with you when you apply for the card to prove that you are who you say you are. As long as all of the documentation that you bring along with you is accepted, the only thing that remains is to pay a fee for the card. Once the fee is paid, they will take your picture and send you your ID card in the mail.
