The state of Vermont is planning to begin issuing enhanced driver’s licenses on Feb. 17.
The new licenses will allow holders to cross the United States-Canada border without a passport or other supporting documents.
The new licenses are designed to comply with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.
Current plans say that after June 1 no one will be able to enter the United States by land from Canada without a passport, a special passport card or an enhanced driver’s license.
The new licenses will cost $25 more than regular ones.
Vermonters don’t need to be drivers to get them.
The state will also issue enhanced non-driver IDs, enhanced learner’s permits and enhanced junior operator licenses.
