Not totally true, there are three states that issue "Enhanced" driver licenses that can be used to cross the Canadian/US Border, in both directions, via land transportation. May also be used on sea travel to and from Puerto Rico. They are New York, Vermont, and Michigan. These licenses are issued by the states DMV, but you must provide necessary paperwork to prove; that you are a citizen of the USA, that you are who say you are, and your physical address. We have used our "licenses" at the Canadian/USA border twice. No problem with that type documentation.
Make that FOUR states. Washington State has the "enhanced" license. People UNDER age 50 are REQUIRED to get it. Those of us old fogeys over 50 are not required because it was determined that we are not likely to cause problems. But you have the option to get it. I didn't. I just carry my passport.

Coming back if you were a really cute girl on a motorcycle it took a long time to get back into the US-- couple of old retirees in a motor home were waived right on back!
Wanna bet? I haven't crossed Canadian border in my Motorhome yet, but whenever I have gone in my car, I get questioned! They want to know why someone is going by themself to Canada and not visiting anyone. Hey, I can't just go up to check out Canada Day? I'm 54! I'm not a "cute girl on a motorcycle."
