Effective July 1, 2005 - Changes In ID Requirements

Missouri law requires all applicants to show proof of lawful presence, proof of identity, and proof of residency before a permit, driver license, or nondriver license can be issued. All applicants must present and surrender their current permit, driver license, or nondriver license, in addition to providing proof of lawful presence. Exceptions: Missourians age 65 or older who are renewing a driver license or nondriver license are NOT required to show proof of lawful presence. Additionally, any Missourian under age 65 without proof of lawful presence may obtain a one-year license IF a 15 year Missouri driving history exists. The special one-year license cannot be renewed, but does provide a full year to obtain the required documents for proof of lawful presence.
