ADOT makes temporary ID cards available online

May 23, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — Arizona drivers who have had their driver license suspended can go online to receive a temporary identification card.

To qualify to get a temporary ID, people must first have had their driver license suspended and they already must have an Arizona license photo on file, taken within the past 12 years, with the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division.

Doug Nick, assistant communication director for customer outreach at ADOT, said that a person can apply for a temporary ID card immediately after their license is suspended. There is no cost.

The ID card is for identification only; it cannot be used as a driver license.

Once a person gets a temporary ID card, that card is valid for only six months. If needed, a person can get the temporary ID card renewed, however, the card would not be valid past the permanent license expiration date, Nick said.

Once a customer has been approved for the card, it can be printed immediately, Nick said.
