Driving Privilege Card (DPC)

A person who would need to obtain a Utah driving privilege card (DPC):

  • Individuals who are unable to establish legal/lawful presence.
  • Individuals who are ineligible for a U.S. social security number and must obtain an individual tax identification number (ITIN) from the Internal Revenue Service.
  • DPC would expire on the birth date in the first year from the date the card was issued or renewed.
  • Individuals meeting these requirements would not be eligible to obtain a commercial driver license or identification card.

Requirements to be eligible for a DPC:

  • You are a resident of Utah; and
  • You are required to obtain a Utah learner permit or DPC in order to legally drive while here in Utah.  The valid DPC allows the holder to operate a motor vehicle in Utah, but may not be used as a means of identification by any Utah government entities.

  2. Schedule a renewal or original (first time applicant) appointment for your visit.
  3. Photo will be taken upon arrival.

  5. Provide proof of identity (name and date of birth.)  Provide social security card or individual tax identification number (ITIN.)  Provide two (2) documents of your Utah residence address.  Visit our Required Documentation page to see what is acceptable proof of each type of document required.
