Driver’s License Name: Make sure that you enter the name shown in your driver’s license even if it is different from your current/legal name.

Driver’s License Number: Each state’s Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) follows different formats when issuing a driver’s license. Sterling Volunteers submission page automatically follows the state driver’s license format and any deviation from the format will show an error. You may go to: https://ntsi.com/drivers-license-format/ to find out your state’s format. Also, please remove the hyphens (-) when entering your driver’s license alphanumeric details. The only special character accepted is asterisk (*) which is applicable to Washington issued licenses.
