    SUMMARY: Wyoming Identification Cards

    Applications for an identification card must be made in person at a Wyoming DOT office. You will need to provide proof of your identity, Wyoming address, and SSN (if required), and pay the required fee. ID card renewals may be completed either in person or by mail. If you need a replacement non-driver ID card, you must apply for a duplicate in person.

    You'll need identification when you lease a car, rent an apartment, travel, and do a number of other activities.

    Getting a state identification card is an easy process, but you must be a resident of Wyoming.
