The parent that is unable to appear must also provide a copy of the front and back of their valid personal photo id (i.e. driver's license).

If the minor is unable to present photo ID with signature and date of birth, one parent must appear to identify the child. 

When a 16-17 year old is applying without a parent, it is advisable that the parent write the check for payment of fees.
