Most adults use their driver's license as their main form of identification. It's used to see Rated R movies, buy tobacco or alcohol, enter nightclubs and bars, board a plane, check into a hotel, cash a check, and verify a credit card. But what if you're too young to drive, you've lost your driving privileges, or you've just never had a license?
For those who don't carry an Arizona driver's license but still need to prove their age or identity, an identification card is in order. ID cards are available to all Arizona residents, including infants.
Visit any Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office with:
- A completed ID card application.
- Two forms of identification. At least one must contain a photo. Otherwise, bring three forms of non-photo identification.
- Payment to cover the $12 application fee. There is no charge if you're 65 or older, or receive federal Supplemental Security Income disability payments.
NOTE: If you're 18 or younger and unable to sign for yourself, a parent or legal guardian may sign the application for you.
Arizona ID cards have no expiration date. However, you will be required to appear at your local Motor Vehicles Division (MVD) facility once every 12 years in order to have an updated photograph taken. Your new ID card will be sent to you by mail.
You may replace a lost or stolen ID for a 12 fee, using either of the following methods:
- Two approved identification documents, one of which contains your photo
- Three approved non-photo identification documents
If you have a major credit or debit card, you may replace your ID card online. Simply follow the instructions to complete the process. Express delivery is available for an extra fee.
