The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is now offering driver privilege cards.

The cards are for individuals who are non-US citizens who cannot meet Virginia’s legal presence requirements.

The cards are available to those ineligible to receive a standard or REAL ID-compliant driver’s license in Virginia.

Customers may be eligible to obtain a driver privilege card if they meet the following criteria:

·       are a non-U.S. citizen who is a resident of Virginia

·       have reported income from Virginia sources or are claimed as a dependent on a tax return filed in Virginia in the past 12 months

·       do not have a driving privilege that is currently suspended or revoked in Virginia or any other state, to include insurance-related infractions

In order to obtain a driver privilege card in Virginia, the following documents must be provided:

·       Two proofs of identity (e.g., foreign passport and Consular identification document issued by country of citizenship)

·       Two proofs of Virginia residency (e.g., monthly mortgage statement and utility bill)

·       Proof of Social Security number (if one has been issued) or the individual’s taxpayer identification number (e.g., W-2 form or ITIN letter)

·       Tax return documentation (e.g. Virginia Resident Form, Virginia Part-Year Resident Income Tax Return Form or Virginia Nonresident Income Tax Return Form, filed in the past 12 months)

All documents must be originals and are subject to verification; however, printouts of approved online residency documents may be accepted.
