It’s interesting that Chips’ driving instructor has both a Photo Card and a Driver’s License. This is apparently now illegal in Ontario.
Currently, in the U.S. and in Ontario the Driver’s License is a photo ID.
The Photo Card or Photo ID is issued to people who don’t have a drivers license but need a government issued ID.
BTW, since Chips is in Ontario, he would need a Driver’s Licence
In the US ID is almost always upper case. It’s pronounced as two individual letters, not as a shortened from of the word.
I’ve never heard of Identity Disc. That’s not what it means here.
Driver’s licenses are issued by the state. Official photo IDs are also issued by the state. Photo IDs are often called picture IDs. There are many other types of ID that may or may not have a picture.
It’s not always necessary to use an official government issued ID. For example an employer issued ID with a photo might be acceptable for some things. Even utility bills with your name and address is acceptable for some things (for example to get a library card).

In that case, shouldn’t those two individual letters mean two individual words?
