How much is it to renew my identification card?

Identification Card Renewal Fee

It's in your best interest to avoid an expired ID. Especially if you've grown accustomed to the advantages of carrying an ID card. If, for example, you attempt to board a plane, register to vote, or apply for a drivers license with invalid ID, you will be turned away.

Depending on your state, you may receive a renewal notice, alerting you of the approaching expiration date for your ID card. Each state has different state ID renewal requirements and fees (see accompanying grid for ID renewal fees). For more specific information on renewing your photo identification, contact your local DMV office.
