Cost Information

New pricing will be in place to account for the doubled renewal cycle and additional security features of all identity credentials. Non-CDL applicants and those age 21 and over may choose between a four-year or eight-year credential for the first four years of the issuance process. CDL credentials will be valid for eight years. Beginning summer 2023, all credentials issued will be valid for eight years. Four-year credentials will be half the cost of an eight-year credential. Using a single, enhanced driver’s license or personal ID eliminates the need to obtain an additional, more costly federal credential, like a U.S. Passport.​

Until new credentials are offered in the applicant’s county of residence in 2019, standard credentials will be offered at their existing price (for example, $20 driver’s license).

The cost to replace or update the name and address of a new standard or Voluntary Travel ID credential will be $15.

Current credential holders may request a new license (new standard or Voluntary Travel ID) if they are within six months of their cards expiration date. If your expiration date is six months or more after the October 1, 2020 federal enforcement date, you will need to apply for a $15 duplicate license. This will allow you to obtain a Voluntary Travel ID credential that maintains your current credentials expiration date until you are eligible to renew your credential. A duplicate credential can be requested at any time.

 Note: U.S. Passports are acceptable for domestic air travel and access to federal facilities. Visit for a complete list of acceptable alternative credentials.
 Note: Pricing information for non-U.S. citizens is also available.
