How to Apply for Your Washington Driver's License or State ID

ISS encourages all students to use a Washington State ID as an easy, safe and legal way of showing your identity for general purposes, rather than your passport. Please keep your passport and other immigration documents in a safe place. Find the instructions here to apply for a WA State License or ID: WA State Department of Licensing Office.
