How much is an ID card in my state?

Identification Card Fee Schedules

Every state offers a photo ID card for residents who don't own a drivers license, instruction permit, or some other form of legitimate photo identification.

The advantages of owning a state ID are many. With identification you can board an airline, register to vote, apply for a passport, cash checks, and, depending on age, purchase alcohol and attend an R rated movie.

As you can see, photo ID is pretty important.

Check your state in the grid below for ID fees, and for more information about the ID application requirements (for example, some states won’t let residents apply for ID cards until they reach a certain age, while other states will allow any resident to apply) and fees in your state, contact your local DMV office.
