How to Obtain a California Senior Citizen ID Card

Posted on May 9, 2014 at 5:30 PM

All to often when older people stop driving they let their drivers license expire so they are left without any identification. This poses a problem when they need to present valid ID, such as when they need a document notarized.

A simple solution is to get a California Senior Citizen ID card. The IDs are good for ten years and if the senior is bed bound the DMV will send someone out to their home.

To obtain a Senior Citizen ID card you will need:


  • Form DL 44 which can be mailed to you by calling the DMV at 800-777-0133
  • A birth certificate or other acceptable document
  • Provide your social security number
  • Your full legal name

The Senior Citizen ID card is free if your are 62 or older.
