Information About Providing Proof of ID
In order to obtain certain documents, like a driver license, or to verify changes to your driver record, you must prove your identity by passing the 6 Points of ID Verification.
Any document in a language other than English requires a “certified translation.”
A “certified translation” is a translation that is
1. Issued by a government entity, such as a consulate or ministry that issued the original document;
2. Signed with a seal by a person qualified to translate, such as someone certified by American Translators Association (atanet.org),
3. From a person competent to translate, over age 18, with a certification that includes (Here is a sample):
a. The translator’s name;
b. The name of the document being translated;
d. A statement that the translator is fluent in English and the language being translated;
e. A statement that the translation is a complete and accurate translation of the full original text (including any stamps or seals) of the document being submitted;
f. A statement that the translator understands that if any part of the translation is intentionally false, the translator is subject to punishment; and
g. The translator’s signature, address, email and phone number.
The 6 Points of ID Verification was designed to help prevent identity theft by ensuring that licenses are only issued with proper legal documents and verification. This requires you to prepare information prior to visiting a motor vehicle agency to conduct a transaction and may result in special document requests from other state agencies.
