If you live in the state of Texas and do not have a driver's license because it has been suspended for one reason or another or if you never possessed a driver's license because you are too young, it is very important to have some form of identification. The state of Texas, along with many others, requires a state-issued ID to check into a hotel, to board airplanes, to cash checks and to complete several other day-to-day activities. Here are a few short steps on how to get a picture ID in Texas.
Find a local Texas drivers license office to apply for an identification card. Visit the Texas Department of Public Safety website (See Reference) to find the nearest office. Click "Tx Driver License" on the left side of the page. Locate and click "Driver License Office Locations" at the bottom of the page. Search by city or county to find a local office.
Go to your local Texas drivers license office to apply in person.
Verify your identity by presenting the required documentation. Additional documentation may be required. Request a list of the required documents.
Complete the application that will be given to you by the agent. You must consent to being fingerprinted and photographed, and you must also provide a signature at the time of application.
Pay the required fee with a money order, cash or a non-temporary check only.
