Destination 225 Driver's License Requirement

Explorer C

I have been looking forward to this program since it came out last summer. I just graduated high school and completed my first year of Running Start at my community college for the Commercial Pilot Fixed-Wing AA degree. I turned 18 in April and have about 120 hours in an aircraft from my slow PPL progression.


Looking at the checklist for what is left to apply, the only thing that I'm not sure about and that's left in the possession of a valid driver's license. I have my state issued ID but am not sure if that is allowed in replacement. Of course, I would go out and get the license now if COVID-19 wasn't a thing, but it is.


Can anybody clarify is this is allowed?
