Help your child obtain a Maryland State ID card issued by the Motor Vehicle Administration
When you go to the MVA, please bring:
Proof of age/identity, lawful presence, verifiable social security number or proof of ineligibility, and Maryland residence. Please refer to Sources of Proof for required documentation.
- If you are using a name other than your birth name, you must bring the document that initiated the change of name, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree or court name change order.
- The Identification Card will be mailed to your Maryland address on record.
- Please pay close attention to the expiration date of your Maryland Identification Card. The MVA is not obligated to remind you when it is time to reapply for an Identification Card.
