The state Division of Motor Vehicles issues ID cards which may be used for identification purposes in the same ways in which Driver's Licenses are used. Applicants for a Wisconsin I.D. card must provide:
- Proof of his/her name and date of birth through a certified birth certificate, passport, or naturalization papers (if not a US citizen, Federal I-151 or I-551 or Federal I94 are acceptable).
- Acceptable proof of personal identification (usually a document with a signature or photo).
- Proof of Wisconsin residency.
- Proof of US citizenship, legal permanent resident status, legal conditional resident status or legal temporary visitor status.
- Your social security number.
The cost of an ID card is $28 for an original or renewal. A duplicate ID card costs $16. ID cards can be obtained at any Division of Motor Vehicles Customer Service Center.
A free ID card is available under Wisconsin law to anyone who:
- will be at least 18 years of age on the date of the next election and;
- requests an ID card for the purpose of voting.
A free ID card is NOT available under certain circumstances (i.e., you already have a valid drivers license) -- please see < http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers/drivers/apply/idcard.htm > for details.
