Licenses, Permits & ID's - Drivers
Vermont License Types
Real ID: A Real ID license meets Federal standards for issuance. Real ID is required for flying on commercial aircraft and to access certain federally controlled facilities (federal courts, federal buildings, military bases).
Privilege Card (DPC): A DPC is marked “Not for Federal Identification” and is NOT Real ID compliant. Issuance of the DPC does not require proof of legal presence or US citizenship.
Enhanced (EDL): An EDL is a Real ID compliant card with the added benefit of being a convenient border crossing document for U.S. citizens returning home from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Bermuda, by land or sea. Must be Vermont resident AND U.S. Citizen.
