State-issued ID Card

All U.S. states offer both driver’s licenses and non-driver state-issued ID cards. A state-issued ID card is a government-issued form of identification that individuals can use to prove their identity, age, and citizenship.

State-issued ID cards are generally issued by state DMV offices, so the application process and card appearance are similar to a driver’s license. However, applicants do not have to take any driving tests to get one, as they do not permit the holder to operate a motor vehicle.

Any U.S. citizen can apply for a state-issued ID card and number. You will need:

  • A completed application form
  • Payment for the processing fees (varies by state)
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship
  • Proof of state residency
  • Proof of identity
  • A Social Security Number

Additional requirements vary by state, so you can check with your local DMV or ID-issuing office for more details.
