How many identity documents do I need to present to obtain an original driver's license or personal identification card?

Anyone applying for an original driver's license or state identification card must provide proof of having a valid Social Security number, U.S.  citizenship or legal presence if not a U.S. citizen, identity along with at least two documents establishing Michigan residency. All documentation is subject to Department of State approval.  In some cases, document approval may not occur in the same day and may require an additional visit.
