    Who is Eligible?

    Motorists are not the only ones who need identification for airline trips, applying for jobs and housing, and to generally prove their identity, age, and residence. If you don't drive, and live in Oregon, you can get a state-issued ID Card instead of a driver's license.

    The Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV) issues ID cards to Oregon residents, provided they do not already have a valid Oregon ID Card or current valid driver license or instruction permit from any state, including Oregon. There is no age restriction for obtaining an ID card in Oregon.

    The identification required to obtain an ID card in Oregon, to be presented in person at the DMV, consists of:

    • Proof of full legal name.
    • Proof of legal presence in the U.S.
    • Proof of identity and date of birth.
    • Proof of residence.

    The DMV provides a full list of accepted identification to meet these requirements.

    How to Apply

    To obtain a non-driver identification card in Oregon, residents of the state must apply in person at a DMV office and do the following:

    • Present required proof of residence, age, and identity.
    • Fill out the Driver License/Identification Card Application (form 735-173).
    • Surrender any valid driver license or permit issued by any other jurisdiction or by Oregon.
    • Pay a $44.50 application fee.

    Renewing an ID Card

    Oregon ID cards are valid for 8 years from the time they are issued. To renew, you must visit any DMV office in person and:

    • Fill out the Driver License/Identification Card Application (form 735-173).
    • Provide either your Social Security number or a signed statement that certifies your ineligibility for an SSN.
    • Provide proper identification (as described above under "Who is Eligible") and date of birth.
    • Provide proof of address IF your address has changed.
    • Pay a $40.50 renewal fee.

    The Oregon DMV does not accept credit or debit cards, but it does accept checks with proper identification. Cash machines are also available at some DMV office locations.

    NOTE: If your license has been expired more than 1 year, you are not eligible to renew and must apply again and pay the fee for an original ID ($44.50).

    Replacing an ID Card

    You must visit any DMV office in person to replace a lost, destroyed or stolen ID card. Be sure to bring:

    • Either your Social Security number or a signed statement certifying your ineligibility.
    • Proper identification (as described above under "Who is Eligible") and date of birth.
    • Proof of residence.
    • If applicable, proof of a name change, such as a marriage certificate or divorce papers.
    • Check or cash to pay a $39.50 replacement fee.

    If your ID is going to expire within the next 14 months, you may be able to renew it instead of replace it.
