Ask for all money upfront like the previous posters have stated. Don't accept the driver's license since it could easily be fake.

Though, I've never done this myself. Reflecting back to the many used bicycles I sold through craigslist, I consider myself lucky that no one stole the bikes when they went for a test ride.

If I were to sell any bikes now, I'd want the full amount upfront if they wanted to take a test ride. If it was a really expensive bike, I'll write up a document for them to sign stating that the bike will be considered sold for the agreed price of X if the rider damages the bike when test riding. End of story.
