Limited-Term Driver License/ID Card


A person who would obtain a limited-term driver license or identification card would be individuals who are not U.S. citizens, but who are in the U.S. legally:

  • The expiration date of your license would be the date of your legal presence document or eight (8) years, whichever is sooner; or one (1) year from the date of issuance if there is no expiration date.
  • Individuals applying for a commercial limited-term driver license are required to have and provide proof of full social security number and DOT medical card.

Requirements to obtain a limited-term document:

  • Fill out the driver license application online prior to your visit and bring with you.  Applications are available in the office, if needed.
  • SCHEDULE a limited-term driver license appointment for your visit.
  • Photo will be taken.
  • Provide evidence of a driving privilege issued in another state, or country, or evidence of completion of a course in driver education to avoid having to carry a learner permit for 90 days if age 19 and older.
  • Provide proof of legal/lawful presence and identity (name and DOB.)  Provide social security card or proof of ineligibility to obtain a social security number.  Provide two (2) documents of Utah residence address.  Visit our required documentation page to find out what is acceptable proof of each type of document required.
  • Completion of required written knowledge test and driving skills test.
  • Pass the eye (vision) test.
  • Submit the applicable fee.

After all requirements for a license have been successfully completed, you will receive a temporary license with a photo on the same day.  The completed license will then be mailed to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.
