MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - Wisconsin is now one of 13 states issuing drivers licenses which meet federal standards.
The licenses include stringent checks on proof of legal presence in the U.S., the person’s address and identity. Drivers will need to bring documents like their Social Security card, passport and something like a utility bill as a proof of address.
The IDs will be made compliant with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. You can still get a regular drivers license, by the new IDs will be required for air travel or entering some federal buildings in the next few years.
