How to Apply for an Alabama Identification Card

The Alabama Department of Public Safety (DPS) issues Non-driver Identification Cards to State residents who don't have a valid ID card, driver's license or instruction permit from the State or any other jurisdiction. The ID card can be used to prove your identity, age, and residence in a variety of situations. The identification card is valid for four years, and expires four years after it was issued. It is not issued to persons who currently hold a valid Alabama drivers' license.
