How to Apply for a North Dakota Identification Card

The North Dakota automated driver license site 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. The identification card is valid for ten years, and expires on your birthday tenth year after it was issued.
