Any resident who does not have a valid driver license can get a photo ID, regardless of age. It looks just like a driver license, except you do not get driving privileges. People use them to write checks, travel on trains or airplanes, get library cards, and to prove their age in order to purchase alcohol or cigarettes.
To get a NC non-driver ID, you can go to any driver license office and apply. You will need the same proof of age and identity as if you were applying for a first-time driver license. The current fee for an ID card is just $10.
As with driver licenses, a five-year renewal system is being phased in. Eventually all non-driver ID cards will be valid for five years and will expire on your birthday.
