How to Apply for a Utah Identification Card

The Utah Driver License Division (DLD) 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 until your 21st birthday if issued before you were 21 years of age and is valid for 5 years if issued thereafter. A Utah ID card obtained after age 65 is valid for life.

APPLYING FOR A UTAH ID CARD

  2. Complete the Driver License/Identification Card form.
  3. Bring proper identification. You will be asked to present two pieces of identification, one of which should be a primary piece of identification.
