How do I renew a state ID card in New Jersey? New Jersey

Renewing Your New Jersey Identification Card

No worries if you're about to face an expired ID. You can easily renew your ID card by visiting any NJ MVC location (neither online or mail renewal options are available for a state ID).
Bring with you:

  • Enough identification to satisfy the state's 6 Point ID Verification Program. New Jersey assigns points to various forms of identification. A Social Security card, for example, carries one point, while a civil birth certificate is worth four points. Visit the MVC website for a full listing.  
  • Cash or a check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard, American Express, Visa) to pay the $24 renew ID fee, or $6 if you're renewing a handicapped ID card.
Renewing an ID card makes sense, especially if you're a teen without a drivers license or some other form of photo ID. (Remember, though: Only teens who are at least 17 can have ID cards.) With a New Jersey identification card you can open a bank account, cash checks, and apply for a passport or New Jersey drivers license.
