Identification cards are issued to people who are either unqualified to drive or choose not to drive. They are not issued to current holders of an Alabama driver's license.
The process for applying for an Alabama ID card is much the same as applying for a driver's license. The only difference is that no testing is required.
To apply for non-driver identification, you must take the following documents to your local driver's license office:
- One document that verifies your name and date of birth. This can include your certified birth certificate, passport, and naturalization or citizenship certificates.
- Social Security card.
- If the first document is not a photo ID, then you must supply one more form of identification. This can include any valid U.S. driver's license, marriage license, Veterans Administration card, Selective Service card, school identification card with photo, a W2 tax form, or divorce decree.
- $23 to purchase the non-driving ID.
Your Alabama ID card must be renewed every four years after the date of issue. You must go in person to your local Drivers License Office, as there are no arrangements in place to renew ID cards by mail or on-line. The fee for each four year renewal is $23.
To replace a lost or stolen ID card, simply follow the instructions for applying for a new card. Replacement cards cost $18.
