Iowa ID Cards

Whether or not you drive, it's still important to be a responsible resident and carry an Iowa identification card with you, no matter where you go. You'll be glad to know that obtaining a new ID card in Iowa comes without any fuss. Just be ready to present a few documents and you'll be set!

To get an ID card, you must meet these requirements:

  • Present documentation of date of birth, identity and lawful presence in the U.S.
  • Present your Social Security Number
  • Have two documents that showcase your Iowa residence
  • Pay any set fee

You will be able to use your card for five years, but you will be required to get an ID card renewal thereafter. However, this does not apply for any senior citizen who is 70 years of age or older; their ID card comes with no expiration date.
