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.
