Minnesota state ID

Sometimes non-drivers are asked to show identification. A Minnesota ID card fulfills that need and can be issued to a person of any age.

  • Your new state ID will be mailed to you in four to six weeks after submitting an application.
  • Carry your current identification and the stamped yellow receipt you receive when you apply until the new ID arrives.
  • If you are under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must sign the application.
  • If you are under 21 years old, your card will be marked “Under -21” and is valid until your 21st birthday.
  • If you are between 21 and 65 years old, your ID expires on your birthday four years after you receive it.
  • Cards issued to anyone age 65 or over are valid for life.
