1. Primary identity document (e.g. birth certificate, passport).
When applying for an Alaska Real ID-compliant license or identification card, applicants must provide a primary identity document such as their birth certificate or passport to prove their identity. Birth certificates are typically issued by the state or territory where an individual is born and serve as a legal form of proof that can be used for various purposes including obtaining an Alaska Real ID-compliant license or identification card.
2. Proof of Social Security Number (e.g., original SSN card).
Applicants must also submit proof of their Social Security number, such as the original SSN card issued to them by the Social Security Administration when registering for their benefits, in order to get an Alaska Real ID-compliant driver's license or identification card. Without this document, applicants will not be able to proceed with the application process and therefore it is important to have this ready prior to applying for an Alaska Real ID-compliant driver's license or state identification card.
3. Two proofs of residency (e.g., utility bill, mortgage statement, rental agreement).
Applicants must provide two proofs of residency such as a utility bill, mortgage statement, or rental agreement in order to receive an Alaska Real ID-compliant driver's license or identification card. These documents demonstrate that the applicant is currently living at the address provided and has been for some time.
4. U.S. Citizenship Certificate if applicable.
For applicants who are not U.S citizens but are able to reside legally in the state of Alaska with a visa or green card status, they must also provide evidence of their legal presence by providing additional documentation like their U.S Citizenship Certificate if applicable when applying for an Alaska Real ID-compliant driver's license or identification card.
5. Current Alaska Driver's License if applicable.
Applicants who already have a valid Alaska driver's license must present it when applying for an Alaska Real ID-compliant version of the same document so that their existing personal information such as name, date of birth, and gender can be transferred over to the new document.
6. Photo taken during application process by DMV personnel.
During the application process, applicants will also have their photo taken by DMV personnel which will be printed on their new license/ID cards along with other required information such as name, birth date, gender, etc., thereby making it difficult for any impostor to get hold of such critical documents without being detected by law enforcement authorities.
7. Non-U.S citizenship documents (e.g., visa) may require additional proofs like I-94 forms.
Applicants who are not citizens of the United States but have a legal right to reside in Alaska by means of a visa or green card status must provide additional evidence of their legal presence such as an I-94 form when applying for an Alaska Real ID-compliant license or identification card.
8. Money to pay for application fee (if applicable).
The application process also requires applicants to pay any applicable fees including those associated with getting an Alaska Real ID driver's license or identification card, since they are typically more expensive than the standard versions due to the added security features. Fees may vary depending on the type of license or ID being applied for and the individual's age. It is important to have the necessary funds available when applying so that the process can proceed without delay.
9. Any other documents requested by the DMV upon submitting application form.
Last but not least, applicants also need to submit a completed application form which will be provided by DMV personnel prior to submitting their application for an Alaska Real ID-compliant driver's license or identification card. This form needs to be filled out accurately and completely in order to avoid any unnecessary delays or issues during the processing of the application. Without this document, applicants cannot legally operate motor vehicles in the state of Alaska and therefore it is essential to complete this form correctly before submitting the application.
