DMV is pleased to offer a service that provides individuals who no longer wish to drive the ability to exchange their valid Virginia license for an ID card. Once you have completed this transaction, you will no longer be a licensed driver and will not be eligible to operate a motor vehicle.
The cost of the identification card is $10 for individuals under the age of 70. There is no charge for individuals age 70 and over.
How to Apply
- Online: DMV will send a letter confirming the transaction, along with a return envelope for you to mail your surrendered license back to DMV.
- At a customer service center: you will be required to surrender your driver's license at that time.
You must complete a Drivers License and Identification Card Application (DL-1P) and submit your Virginia driver’s license and payment, if required.
Receiving Your ID Card
Your new identification card will be mailed to you.
