    I so know the answer to this YES YOU CAN USE THE ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSE. I know this because my dumb self thought I had one when California changed their ID. The border patrol agent broke it down to me and said the enhanced license has a chip or something like that which is why they take that. But only a few states do them. The enhanced license is equivalent to a passport card. Plus on top of that when I use to cross the border they use to give those flyers saying that when the law passed you need one and people were still crossing the border with only their license. So yes I know this for sure. If you don't think so you can use that license and your birth certificate and they still will let you cross. I went without a passport so you won't have any issues.
    Reason: further clarify.

    I don't know what your plans are, but i never go into Mexico via car when i go. I always park on the US side and cross over walking or via taxi or shuttle. I have a passport but use the DSL to get back into the states. Wishing you the best!

    It looks like I typed in the wrong acronym. Some people refer to it as an enhanced driver's license. It's an electronic card that looks like a driver's license. It allows you to cross the border to Canada or Mexico without a passport. It's for ground border crossings only. I use it all the time to go back and forth to Mexico from Tucson. It is less expensive than a passport. Hope this helps.
