What is a Driving Privilege Card (DPC)?

A driving privilege card is a “Class D” issued to drive motor vehicles (not a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) or motorcycle) and may not be used as a means of identification by any Utah government entities. Every resident of Utah who drives a motor vehicle on the highways must have a valid Utah license, learner permit, temporary driving permit, or driving privilege card.

A regular adult driver is 21 and over. A regular minor “provisional” driver is 20 and under.

A person who would need to obtain a DPC is:
  • Individuals who are legally paroled in the U.S. (not eligible for REAL ID document.)
  • 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.
  • Individuals meeting these requirements would not be eligible to obtain a commercial driver license or identification card.
  • You are a resident of Utah.

When applying for a Utah driving privilege card, your privilege to drive cannot be suspended, revoked, disqualified, or denied in another state.

Under Utah law, you are responsible for refraining from driving if there is any uncertainty about your physical, mental, or emotional status, which may affect driving safety.  If the condition persists, you are responsible for reporting it to the Driver License Division.

Appointments should be scheduled for all services to reduce your wait time.  Walk-in service may experience much longer wait times due to appointments taking priority.
