    Arizona Identification Cards

    Arizona identification cards are great if you need to prove your age and identity but don’t have a driver’s license. ID cards in Arizona are handled by the AZ Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), and are helpful for such tasks as proving your identity, voting, and opening a bank account.

    Arizona ID Card Eligibility Requirements

    You can apply for an Arizona ID card at any age, as long as you are an AZ resident.

    You cannot hold both an Arizona ID card and driver’s license at the same time. You must surrender any valid driver’s license to the Arizona MVD when you apply for an AZ ID card.

    Apply for an Arizona ID Card

    You must apply for an Arizona identification card in-person at either:

    You must bring:

    • A completed Driver License/Identification Card Application(Form 40-5122). If you’re under 18 years old, your parent or legal guardian must sign your application.
    • Acceptable proof of identification (see below).
    • Valid payment. See the “Arizona Identification Card Fees” section below for fees and accepted payment methods.

    You will have your picture taken at the MVD office, and your new ID card will be mailed to you.

    Proofs of Identification

    When you apply for an AZ ID card, you will need to prove your identity either with:

    • 2 forms of ID, 1 document of which has a photo.
    • 3 forms of ID, if none of your documents have a photo.

    At least 1 document must be a primary document showing your date of birth, while all others may be secondary.

    Primary documents include:

    • U.S. birth certificate.
    • U.S. passport or passport card.
    • U.S. military ID card.

    Secondary documents include:

    • Social Security card.
    • W-2 form.
    • Bank card.

    All documents must be originals or certified copies and must be in English. For a full list of accepted documents, visit the Arizona DOT website.

    Arizona Identification Card Fees

    The cost for an original, duplicate, or replacement Arizona identification card is $12, but can be waived if you are either:

    • 65 years old or older.
    • Receiving Supplemental Security Income disability payments from the federal government.

    If you order a duplicate or replacement AZ ID card online and require express delivery, it will cost an additional $16.95.

    Renew Your AZ Identification Card

    You will need to update your photo on your AZ identification card every 12 years. The AZ MVD will send a reminder for you to visit an AZ MVD driver’s license facility in person.

    You will need to have your photo taken and apply for a replacement AZ ID card. See the “Replace Your Arizona ID Card” section below for more information.

    Replace Your Arizona ID Card

    If your AZ ID card is lost or stolen, you should report it to your local police department to reduce the risk of identity theft. You can order a duplicate Arizona ID from the AZ MVD online, by phone, or in person. You cannot order a replacement ID card by mail.

    Online Replacement

    You can apply for a replacement AZ ID card online if you have a current photo on file with the AZ MVD. If you’d like a new photo taken for your Arizona ID card, you will need to apply in person.

    To apply for a replacement online, visit the Arizona MVD’s ServiceArizona website. You will need to provide your:

    • Full name.
    • Date of birth.

    If you don’t know your Arizona ID card number, you will also need to provide your:

    • Social Security number.
    • Current AZ address on file with the AZ MVD.
    • Eye color.

    This information must match what the AZ MVD has on file.

    You will also need valid payment for the replacement ID card fee, if applicable. See the “Arizona Identification Card Fees” section for fees and accepted payment methods.

    Your replacement Arizona ID card will be mailed to you.

    Express Delivery

    You have the option to have your duplicate AZ ID card sent via express delivery to any address in the U.S. This can be different to the mailing address you have on file with the AZ MVD.

    To request express delivery of your AZ ID card, you must select it as an option when you order online. You will need to provide your:

    • Phone number.
    • Email address.
    • One-time express delivery address (must not be a P.O. Box, APO/FPO, or general military delivery box).

    If you don’t receive your duplicate ID card within the estimated timeframe, check the tracking information provided with your order or contact the MVD.

    In-Person Replacement

    To apply for a duplicate Arizona ID card in person, visit your local AZ MVD office or an authorized third-party vendor (service fees may apply in addition to the standard ID card fees).

    Change Your Name and Address

    If you change your name or address, you must notify the AZ MVD within 10 days.

    You will need a document proving your new and previous names, such as a:

    • Marriage certificate/license.
    • Divorce decree.
    • Citizenship or naturalization certificate.
    • Court order.

    Your document must be an original or certified copy (certified by the issuing agency).
