    No it isn't. Common misconception. There are lots of specific things that may require it, but there is no requirement to have it per se.

    Steve.
    No. Lots of people think so, but the answer is no.

    I wrote the standard operating procedure manual for my hometown police department for my master's report on my internship in city management and pretty carefully researched that at the time.

    That said, if you don't have it things can slow you down while the truth of who you say you are if asked (with cause) is verified, but it isn't a crime not to have it.

    OTOH, except for those of us living in very large cities we pretty much drive anywhere we go so most of us do have it as a matter of course.

    No Steve! However, many states issue Photo ID Driver's licenses. Also, many credit cards now include photos. The latter are optional, given on request. Some sates even issue special driver's licenses that verify that you are a US citizen. This is useful in states that border Canada as you can then cross the border without a passport.

    Spot on PE. States DO issue photo IDs in lieu of driver licenses for those who don't drive, and anyone here who can't or doesn't drive would be nuts not to get one as there are so many things you must have one for (including buying alcohol or getting into many places that serve it, often even if you are clearly as old as Methuselah) but you certainly aren't legally required to get it, much less carry it.

    You are not required to carry identification in the USA. I rarely cary any ID unless I'm flying, working, shopping, or driving.

    As I was a reserve officer in the military, Kodak advised me to carry no ID relating to that during international trips. Different reason here.

    Which covers, personally, about 98% of the time when I'm out of the house past my own yard, but that might not be true for everyone.

    My mom always used to call me a "vagrant" when I would leave the house with no money and no I.D.
