Non-Driver Identification

A Non-Driver Identification Card for individuals who do not drive. Any applicant for a Vermont Non-Driver Identification Card must be a Vermont resident.

All Vermont residents, regardless of age, are eligible for a Vermont Non-Driver ID card. Applicants can apply for a Non-Driver ID card if a Vermont license is valid, suspended, revoked, cancelled, or expired. However, you may only hold one (1) Real ID compliant document at a time. Therefore if you wish to have a valid license and a valid Non-Driver ID, one of the two (2) must be a non compliant card.

How to Obtain a Non-Driver ID

All original issue (first time) Non-Driver ID Cards must be applied for in person at a DMV office with a completed form VL-17 and appropriate fees and documentation. License fees »

Applicants under age 18 are required to have a parent/guardian sign the application for the Identification Card.
