Those applying for TVDL's need to provide verifiable documents identifying them.

Also, any credit card, Mexican electoral card, court order document, home ownership documents, two documents that have current address or a bank account valid for 9 months, school attendance verification and insurance policy with home address can be used to verify state residency. 
Only appointments will be taken to apply for a license at all 26 state facilities and people seeking a TVDL will have to pass a vision, written exam and road test. Applicants must have auto insurance or the license in invalid. The TVDL will not be valid for identification purposes, buy a firearm, board commercial airplanes and gain access to a federal court or government facility.
The cost of the license is $30.00 and will be valid for only three years and is not renewable. The applicant must reapply to get another three year TVDL, their identity and residency must be verified again.
The license will be mailed to the applicant's address once all the information is verified and approved.
