I applied for a federal job at the VA hospital several years ago and I had to provide my drivers license and SS card along with my application. They made color copies of each, I didn't get that position and didn't get my copies back either. But after the government shutdown, I'm happy I didn't get that job.

A job is a two way street.......it not only has to be good for the employer but it has to be good for the employee too. Therefore, it is perfectly fine for you to say after an offer is made "Thank you for offering me this position, I frankly didn't expect an offer this quickly, can I think about all we have talked about for a day and get back to you tomorrow ?"

Doing it that way you haven't offended them and it is very reasonable that you have asked for time to digest it all.
