You can apply for an ID card as early as 10 years old.
The card is valid for four years and expires on your birthday. It also makes obsolete any other license or ID card you have from another state. If you're a resident and want to drive legally in Nevada, you must obtain a Nevada driver license.
When applying at a DMV office, you will need:
- Proof of identity (read carefully; you must exactly adhere to these requirements)
- A valid Nevada street address
At the time of application, the examiner will take your picture and you'll be issued a temporary ID card to use until your original arrives in the mail.
The following fees are required for an ID card:
- Under age 18 (original, duplicate, renewal): $6
- 18 to 64 (original, duplicate, renewal): $12
- 65 or older (original or duplicate): $7
- 65 or older (renewal): $3
- Name change (any age): $7
- Address change (any age): $3
NOTE: Nevada recently instituted a Central Issuance policy. DMV offices no longer issue on-the-spot permanent ID cards, permits and licenses. Instead you'll receive a temporary paper document, valid for up to 30 days. Your permanent card will be mailed within 10 business days.
Your Nevada ID card is valid for a period of four years, expiring on your date of birth. In Nevada, you may be able to renew your ID card online, as long as you've kept your address current with the Nevada DMV. Otherwise, you will need to complete your ID card renewal in person at your local Full Service Nevada DMV office.
If you have questions about your ID card renewal, you may email the Nevada DMV at email@example.com. Be sure to include your name, ID card number and any other pertinent information with your inquiry.
To replace a lost, stolen, or damaged ID card, head to your nearest Full Service DMV office, and present acceptable proof of identity documentation, such as your passport, birth certificate, and Social Security card.
- Under 18: $6
- Age 18-64: $12
- Age 65 or older: $7
You can always renew your ID during the same visit.
If you're homeless, you may qualify for a one-time fee waiver for a duplicate ID card. Fill out the Declaration of Homeless Status and submit it with a completed Non-Commercial Driver License Application and proof of identity. This applies only to duplicate ID cards and licenses.
