How do I replace a NY ID card? New York
Replacing Your New York Identification CardIf your state ID goes missing the NY DMV makes it easy to replace regardless if you're a teen or a retiree. You have two options for ordering a duplicate ID: in person and by mail.
NOTE: Teens younger than 16 need parental consent to obtain an ID card. If you’re younger than 16 and need a duplicate card, contact your nearest NY DMV to find out if you’ll also need parental consent for the replacement.
Visit any DMV office with the following:
- A completed Application for Driver License or Non-Driver ID Card (Form MV-44). This form can be downloaded from the DMV website or from any DMV office.
- Six points worth of identification. New York assigns points to various forms of ID. A car title, for example, is worth two points, while a Certificate of Naturalization is worth three.
- Cash or a check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard, American Express, Visa, Discover) to pay the lost ID fee (see fees below).
You'll need to gather the following:
- A completed Application for Driver License or Non-Driver ID Card (Form MV-44).
- Proper identification as explained on Form MV-44.1.
- A check or money order made payable to "Commissioner of Motor Vehicles" to pay duplicate ID fee (see fees below).
