Non-Driver ID Card

Are you REAL ID ready?

If your New York State license or ID does not have a star or a flag on it, then you do not have a REAL ID compliant document.

Starting October 2020, you must have a REAL ID compliant document (or a passport) to fly. You will not be allowed to board a plane using your regular ('Standard') license or ID. Learn more about REAL ID or Enhanced Licenses, Permits and IDs.

 

A non-driver ID is a photo ID card for someone who does not drive. A person at any age can get a non-driver ID card. You must apply in a DMV office.
