What if I lost my Utah ID card?

For a duplicate ID, you must appear at a driver license office and present original or copies certified by the issuing agency showing evidence of identity, legal/lawful presence, full social security number, two proofs of Utah residence, if it is different than the address on your current Utah record, and evidence of name change, if applicable.  The fee is $18.00 and will be valid for 5 years.

Can I renew my ID card on the internet?


Yes; in order for the applicant to be eligible for an ID card renewal one time through the mail or internet, the original identification card must have been issued after January 1, 2010, and the individual may not also possess a valid driver license.  Eligible applicants will be sent a letter to notify them of their eligibility and the process to complete in order to renew their valid regular ID card.
