How do I apply for a Georgia ID card? Georgia

Obtaining a GA State ID

Children, teens, and adults alike - as long as you're old enough to sign your name you're eligible to apply for a Georgia identification card. The ID card comes in handy for cashing checks, airport check-ins, and if you're a teen trying to see an R- rated movie, especially if you don't own a drivers license (the typical means of showing identification).

To apply, visit any Department of Driver Services (DDS) office with:

  • Proof of Georgia residency.
  • Proof of name and date of birth. No photocopies; only original or certified identification forms accepted.
  • Social Security number (you do not need to show the card).
  • Cash or a check, money order, or credit card (Visa, Discover, American Express, MasterCard) to pay either the $20 (five years) or $35 (10 years) ID card fee.
Even if your Georgia drivers license is suspended or revoked you may still apply for a GA ID, and you do not have to surrender your ID after obtaining a Georgia driver license.
