Does a Driver's License or ID card marked “limited term” have different or lesser privileges?

No. The Driver's License or ID card remains fully valid for all purposes normally associated with a Driver's License or ID card in the form issued.

A Driver's License or ID card marked “limited term” merely signifies that it is issued to a person who is a foreign national with temporary lawful status in the United States and has a shorter term than a regular Driver's License or ID card.

Replacement License, Permit, or ID

If your Driver's License, Learner's Permit, or Non-Driver ID has been lost, stolen, or destroyed you may apply for a replacement either in person or through the mail.  Requesting a replacement by mail will result in the issuance of a Non-Real ID compliant card, UNLESS you visited an office after 01/01/2014 and became Real ID compliant.  When requesting a replacement by mail it will take 10-15 business days for the replacement to arrive.
