Maybe; The Vermont Enhanced Driver's License (EDL) is a driver’s license that can also be used as a cross-border travel document to enter the U.S. by land and sea. It denotes both identity and citizenship, per (WHTI). The Vermont EDL is a Real ID card and also a cross-border travel document for entering the U.S. by land and sea. However, not every Vermont Real ID card is also an EDL.
Only Vermont Licenses marked as “Enhanced” may be used for cross-border travel.
