Your 6 Points of ID Verification Questions Answered

Why Is Passing Important?

Certain licenses can’t be attained without 6 points of identification. If you’re seeking any of the following, you’ll need to comply with MVC guidelines:


  • New Jersey driver’s license
  • New Jersey driver’s permit or “probationary” license
  • Non-driver state ID card
  • Boat license
  • Motorcycle license

What Documents are Accepted?

The goal is to achieve 6 points through four possible types of documents. These include: 

  • At least one primary ID
  • At least one secondary ID
  • Verifiable Social Security Number
  • Proof of address
