Can I get a checking account without a driver's license?
Answer: Banks and credit unions are required to verify your identity when you apply to open an account. If you dont have a drivers license, ask what other types of identification will be accepted.
The most common way to verify your identity is with a drivers license. There are other ways banks and credit unions can verify your identity, so if you dont have a drivers license, ask the bank or credit union what types of identification it will accept. The rules leave some discretion to banks and credit unions on what forms of ID to accept.
