The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles will increase the number of locations where Vermonters can get enhanced drivers’ licenses, which can be used for land or water travel to Canada.
The licenses are now available at the DMV office in Burlington. Last month the department started offering them in Rutland. Prior to that people had to travel to Montpelier for licenses.
The licenses can be used instead of a passport or other travel document for people entering the United States by land or sea.
Since February, Vermont has issued more than 13,000 enhanced licenses.
People seeking enhanced licenses need to provide extensive proof of citizenship and their identity.
