Identification Cards

Identifications Cards

Identification cards are issued to any persons at least 5 years of age and who are residents of South Carolina, and do not have a valid South Carolina driver's license or beginner's permit. You may apply for an ID card by completing Form 447-NC and presenting proper identification at your local DMV office. The card expires five years after the issue date. Identification cards are free to citizens who are 17 years of age or older. There is a $5.00 fee for persons between the ages of 5 and 16.

 

If you wish to renew your identification card and it is expired:

  • LESS than nine months from the expiration date on the identification card, the renewal process is the same as if it was not expired.  
  • MORE than nine months from the expiration date on the identification card than you MUST:  
    • present proof of residency document; and 
    • be prepared to present proof of identity and proof of social security number only if DMV is not able to locate these source documents in their system.
