Using State Driver's License as an Identity Document

When issuing DoD ID cards to customers, we are required to enter an expiration date for most identity documents in RAPIDS.
Active-duty Service members and their eligible dependents may present a state driver's license with no expiration date. If the expiration date of a state driver's license is blank or displays ''military,'' the VO is required to enter the following as the expiration date of the driver's license:
•  The expiration date of the DoD ID card being issued, or
•  Up to three years from the current date (whichever is sooner).

DMDC will no longer allow DEERS/RAPIDS Sites to utilize an EXPIRED State Driver’s License as an identity document. The extension issued for an expired driver’s license is for driving privileges ONLY. It does not apply to identity documentation.

When using a state driver’s license as a form of acceptable identification, a PHOTO IS REQUIRED. If you have renewed your license and only have the paper copy without a photo, it can no longer be accepted unless you present your expired license at the same time.

REMEMBER, THE DEPENDENT ID CARD IS A PRIVILEGE CARD. At no time can a dependent receive an ID card without proper identification or documentation.

To help us serve you better, please make sure you have everything you need prior to your visit.


Appointments are required.

Walk-ins will only be served on a first come first served basis from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. each day. Walk-ins during the rest of the day will be seen on a case-by-case basis with Supervisor or Site Security Manager approval only (exceptions for lost/stolen ID cards, will be seen with proper documentation).
