Why are there so many options for Identification? Which one is best? Which one is most expensive? The passport card may seem like the obvious winner, but you may be surprised. This one is very easy once you break it down. The enhanced License is definitely the winner here. But I’ve boiled the differences down for you. See if you agree.
$30 - $38 (depends on state)
The Real ID would definitely have to be the one the gives the least. You can only use this as your license and for domestic flights. This card is not meant for travel outside of the United States.
This card provides proof of U.S. citizenship that allows you to enter by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.
Enhanced Drivers License
$25- $45 (depends on state)
This one may just be the best one because not only does this card provides proof of U.S. citizenship that allows you to enter by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda but this is also your license. An all in one.
