Vermont to Issue Enhanced Drivers’ Licenses Next Month

January 13, 2009

The state of Vermont is planning to begin issuing enhanced driver’s licenses on Feb. 17.

The new licenses will allow holders to cross the United States-Canada border without a passport or other supporting documents.

The new licenses are designed to comply with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.

Current plans say that after June 1 no one will be able to enter the United States by land from Canada without a passport, a special passport card or an enhanced driver’s license.

The new licenses will cost $25 more than regular ones.

Vermonters don’t need to be drivers to get them.

The state will also issue enhanced non-driver IDs, enhanced learner’s permits and enhanced junior operator licenses.
