What it takes to Apply for a DL or ID Card in Texas (TX DPS Brochure)

Texas Driver License (DL) Document Requirements Brochure – When applying for your first Texas driver license (DL) or identification card (ID), you must provide documents to prove you have lived in Texas for at least 30 days. If you are surrendering a valid, unexpired driver license from another state, you must still prove your Texas residency, but the 30-day requirement is waived. Simply provide two of the following documents that contain the same name and Texas residential/physical address. You must provide two proofs of Identification and Social Security Number (SSN).
