According to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles website, applicants for new Indiana driver's licenses must present documents verifying their identity, Social Security number, United States lawful status and Indiana residency. These requirements for a SecureID are designed to comply with federal security laws.
Birth certificates are often used to verify identity. The certificate can be an original or a certified copy filed at the appropriate agency in the state of birth. A United States passport or a foreign passport with a visa and I-94 form are also considered acceptable documents.
Residents applying to renew, amend or replace their current license have the option of requesting a SecureID or a non-SecureID, which requires less documentation.
