How to Apply for an Arizona Identification Card

The Arizona Motor Vehicle Division issues non-driver identification cards to State residents who don't have a valid ID card, driver 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. An Arizona identification card does not expire unless it is issued to temporarily replace a suspended license, in which case it is valid for 180 days.

APPLYING FOR AN ARIZONA ID CARD

  1. Locate the MVD office nearest you, as you will have to apply for the ID card in person. You cannot apply online.
  2. Complete the Driver License/Identification Card form.
  3. Bring proper identification. You will be asked to present two pieces of ID with at least one photo ID or three pieces of non-photo ID, with at least one from the primary list.
  4. Pay the ID card application fee, currently $12, by cash or check. There is no fee for applicants aged 65 years and over, or for recipients of the federal supplemental security income disability payments. Payment methods accepted include cash, cashier's check or money order. Some MVD offices also accept credit cards. Confirm the exact fee with your local MVD Office.
  5. You must also surrender any valid driver license or instruction permit issued by the state of Arizona or any other jurisdiction.

RENEWING AN ARIZONA ID CARD

An Arizona identification card does not expire unless it is issued to temporarily replace a suspended license, in which case it is valid for 180 days and does not require renewal. However you will have to renew the photograph on your ID card every 12 years, which can be done by visiting an MVD office.

REPLACING A LOST, STOLEN, OR DESTROYED ID CARD

You may be issued a replacement identification card if your original ID card has been lost, stolen or destroyed, or if you have had a name or address change. You can apply for a replacement identification card online at this website or by calling (877) 301-8093.

Alternatively you can also apply in person following the steps below:

  1. Locate the MVD office or third party office nearest you.
  2. Bring proper identification. You will be asked to present two pieces of ID with at least one photo ID or three pieces of non-photo ID, with at least one from the primary list.
  3. Pay the ID card replacement fee, currently $4. Confirm the exact fee with your local DMV Office.
