Two Forms of Identification
In order for anyone, a minor or an adult, to obtain any type of identification from the AZ MVD for the FIRST TIME, the person would have to present at least 2 forms of identification. If the applicant has had an AZ ID after 1994, then no ID is necessary. One form must be a primary, usually a birth certificate, passport or active or retired military ID, these forms contain the legal name and birth date of the individual. The 2nd or 3rd form is considered a secondary. The secondary is usually a social security card, bank card, medical card, pretty much most anything else found in a standard wallet with the individuals name printed. All documents must contain the same name unless accompanied by a court document, marriage certificate or divorce decree. Below I have put together a quick matrix that might help.
Note: For applicants bringing a birth certificate, your secondary must have a photo OR 2 secondary documents without a photo is necessary.
Social Security Card
The social security card should be for the party obtaining the identification (ID). So the social security card the parent brings should be the child’s. The parent would have to provide a Drivers License (DL) or ID card from AZ or documents below to obtain a state ID as well.
A birth certificate must be issued by a US state, territory or possession. The birth certificate usually will be an original or certified copy issued by a vital records or health department division of that state, territory or possession of the US. Anything listed as an abstract, issued by a hospital or contains imprints of the baby’ hands or feet are not considered actual birth certificates. In addition all documents used to obtain a state identification must be originals or copies certified by the issuing agency.Book Your Road Test Appointment Online
