Renew Online        Renew by Mail         

We strongly encourage those who are eligible to renew
or request a replacement ID card online or by mail.

If you did not renew using the online or mail-in method 5 years ago
(for your last renewal), you are eligible to renew online or by mail!

A replacement (or duplicate) ID card may be requested
online or by mail once every 10 years.



Walk-in customers are welcome,
but why sit in the waiting room?

Use our scheduling tool to make an appointment!

Identification Cards

Obtain or Renew a Non-Driver ID Card

An identification card is an official document that can be used to validate your identity if you’re a non-driver or don’t have a South Dakota Driver’s License. There’s no age requirement for an ID card.  To apply for an identification card, please schedule an appointment to visit an exam station in person.

To apply for an ID card, you’ll need a few required documents.

If you’re under age 21 with less than five years until your 21st birthday, your ID card will expire 30 days after your 21st birthday.  To renew your ID card, you can apply online or by mail.
