    Who is Eligible?

    Mississippi's Department of Public Safety offers identification cards to any resident 6 years of age or older, and to any blind or physically disabled person. ID cards are valid for 4 years for most people; IDs for legally blind residents are good for 10 years.

    What to Bring

    To obtain a state ID card, visit your local driver's license office with the following information:

    • A completed application form.
    • Proof of residency (if 18 years old or older).
      • The following may work: electric or water bill, lease agreement, vehicle-registration receipt, mortgage documents, homestead exemption receipt, bank statement, notarized employer verification on company letterhead (with a phone number) that states your address, your parent or guardian's state driver's license (if under 21 years old).
    • Social Security card (non-metal) or a print out from the Social Security Administration.
    • Certified copy of birth certificate (not a hospital certificate).

    Fees

    Fees for ID cards are as follows:

    • Original identification cards: $17.
    • Renewals: $17.
    • Duplicate ID card: $9.
    • Replacement of a lost ID card: $14.
    • Disability ID card: $19.

    Fees must be paid in cash only; no checks, credit cards, or money orders are accepted.

    Renewing Your ID Card

    Mississippi ID cards are issued for a period of 4 years. For blind cardholders, the renewal is every 10 years.

    Mississippi has online renewal available. Make sure you read through the instructions prior to proceeding, as you may not be eligible to renew online, for example if you've changed your address.

    Of course, you may renew your ID card in person at your local Mississippi Highway Patrol Office.

    Replacing Your ID Card

    If necessary, make sure you update your address before requesting a duplicate ID card to avoid additional delays and fees.

    You can replace your card online. Follow the instructions at the state's website, and get your credit card ready. You'll need to provide basic information, exactly as it appears on the original card, and pay a modest convenience fee.
