Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James, and I will be assisting you. As we work through your questions, think about this as a back and forth conversation. Once you've received the information you need, you can thank me by issuing me a positive rating of 3, 4, or 5 stars. This is the only way I get credit for doing my job, so please do not forget this before leaving the site.
ANSWER: Unfortunately, you cannot use a regular Driver's license in place of an Enhanced Driver's License (EDL). But your state may issue EDL's. Here is information about EDL's, provided by the Customs and Border Protection: https://www.dhs.gov/enhanced-drivers-licenses-what-are-they
Now, only a few states provide Enhanced Driver's Licenses: Washington State, Vermont, Michigan, Minnesota, and New York.
If you cannot get an Enhanced Driver's License, then you should take a passport with you.
I hope that answers your questions. Please remember that I do not get credit for doing my job unless you give me a positive rating of 3, 4 or 5 stars or any of the smiling faces. So please do that for me. You can still ask more questions even after giving a rating.
I want to be sure you are not confused. If you look at the link you just received, it clearly says that a Driver's License must be an Enhanced Driver's License. You cannot use a regular driver's license for this purpose.
I hope that clarifies any confusion.
You can use any 2 of the items in list b if you don't have list a ! My answer clearly shows that you can use a drivers license not the enhanced one.
