How much is it to replace a damaged or lost ID?

If your identification card goes missing, it's in your best interest to replace it, and the sooner the better. Otherwise, without your ID card you'll lose all of the advantages that come with owning a photo ID such as cashing checks; purchasing wine, beer, and spirits; clearing airport security; and other transactions that require identification.
