I would go the DMV route as Jan and A'ndrea suggested. I don't know what state you are in or the laws. But here you can get a state issued picture ID for that purpose without anything to do with driving. Best of luck.

shawnal, what is wrong with your child's driver's permit or license as I.D.? In California, when we disembarked Pride, the Immigration Marshall looked over my daughter's passport and her driver's license. He told my husband and I that it's nice to see a 17 yr. old have both forms of I.D., but that her license would have been fine alone. Although, he did encourage us to get a passport for our 13 year old. I had her original raised seal birth certificate with us.
BTW... NYS driver's permits and licenses have the individual's photo on them. Does California's?
A'ndrea - Unfortuately, my daughter doesn't have a driver's license yet and her permit has no photo. That's the problem. I think we'll be OK now that the restrictions were relaxed today.
Hi cant you just go to a notary with a photo,and her b/certificate he will then notorise these documents under oath,they then are legal binding docs, that a court of law would acept so, I would hope rcl would. best of luck steve
Although the passport requirements are expected to be eased today due to the backlog, she might still need a photo ID to board the ship, both at embarkation and in each port. This has been standard practice for years for pax 16 and older. I'd still look into getting a non-driver photo ID, just in case.
Well, the only Sample I ever knew or heard of was Junior. Maybe she was raised in the south?
Bad boy. Get back on track.
This may have already been stated, but your daughter's school, unless you're in a real small setting like Alpine County or Modoc County, should have a back up student ID card. My kid had his wallet stolen at school and they reissued him a card in minutes.
