  • if you go online to you can actually print out the application and mail it in along with the documents. however, you do need to mail in the originals or certified copies of all the documents (including your actual drivers license) so keep that in mind. and it lists all the necessary documents for obtaining a new card.

  • I would assume you need a birth certificate

  • You just need an ID. They will give you a letter stating that you have requested a new card which should work for anything that you need for now. They will mail you your card I want to say it took me a week to get mine.

  • Try checking out the info online. They will need proof that you are who you are. Most businesses accept your drivers license. If they require more than one item as proof, maybe you could use your marriage license, if you have one. Good luck.
