The reason they are asking for your ID is to verify that you truly are who you say you are. You can easily fix this by providing Facebook with your government ID. Make sure you have a government issued ID with your name, birthday or your name and a photo. If you don't have a government ID, you can submit two different forms of identification with just name and photo.
Take your identification and cover up any information that you do not want shown. Then when you are ready, either scan your license or ID with a scanner, or take a picture of it with your phone. Make sure you can clearly read your name that matches your Facebook account.
When you are ready to upload your ID, open this link
Scan your ID onto your computer so you can upload it in a minute
