Vermont Non-Driver Identification Card
You cannot have a Vermont Non-Driver Identification Card if you have a valid license in any other state.
Any applicant for a Vermont Non-Driver Identification Card must be a Vermont resident.
Definition of Resident: Any person living in Vermont who intends to make Vermont their principal place of domicile either permanently or for an indefinite number of years. Persons who live in Vermont for a particular purpose involving a defined period of time (including students, migrant workers employed in seasonal occupations and persons employed under a contract with a fixed term) are not residents. Example: A person working for IBM is transferred from the Fishkill, NY facility to Essex, VT for a contracted period of five years, moves to Jericho, VT, places their children into the local school system and registers to vote. That person is not a Vermont resident for purposes of vehicle registration and does not have to register their vehicles in Vermont. They must, however, maintain a valid license and registration in order to operate vehicles.
All original (first-time issue) Non-Driver Identification Cards and duplicate Non-Driver Identification Cards must be applied for in person at a DMV office.
The Commissioner of Motor Vehicles will cancel a Non-Driver Identification Card if the card is fraudulently obtained, altered or misused.
Any applicant for an original or duplicate Non-Driver Identification Card is required to show documentary proof of identity and date and place of birth. Proof of identity must be one primary document and one secondary document. A primary document must contain the full name and date of birth and must be verifiable, i.e., the department must be able to contact the issuing agency to determine the authenticity of the document. Additional documentation may be required at the Department's discretion if documentation submitted is questionable or if there is reason to believe the person is not who s/he claims to be. The name, date of birth and place of birth shown on an application for a Non-Driver Identification Card must match the information shown on the proof of identity documents submitted with the application. Applicants must bring original documents with them to a Department of Motor Vehicles Customer Service Counter. Copies of documents submitted will be retained by this Department.
All Non-Driver Identification Cards are issued to expire at midnight on the eve of the fourth birthday anniversary from date of issue.
Vermont law requires that you notify (in writing) the Agency of Transportation, Department of Motor Vehicles, 120 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05603-0001 within 30 days of any change of your legal name, and/or legal residence, and/or mailing address.
