Identification Cards in Utah
What if you need to show an ID, but you don't drive and don't need a license? Fortunately, you don't need to go through the motions of getting a driver's license just to prove your age or identity.
A state ID card is used to verify your identification when you don’t qualify for a driver’s license or no longer drive due to age or medical conditions. Identification cards are useful for cashing checks, for law enforcement inquiries, traveling, and other times when you need to verify your identify.
You cannot have a driver's license and an ID card. You must surrender your driver’s license to receive a state ID from the Department of Public Safety.
Visit your local Department of Public Safety Driver License Division office in person and:
- Complete an ID card application (Form DLD6A).
- Provide proof of your identity/legal presence with documents such as your:
