It’s always a good idea to carry some form of identification on your person at all times. Most people use their driver’s licenses as an ID card, but what do you do if you don’t have a driver’s license? At MVD Express, we can help you obtain a New Mexico ID card. You can carry this card in your wallet and use it as identification when necessary. If you are interested in learning more, then stop by MVD Express, or contact our friendly customer service agents.

How to Obtain Your New Mexico ID Card

Thanks to the REAL ID act, residents of New Mexico now have the option of obtaining a REAL ID-compliant ID card or a non-compliant card. The benefit of carrying a REAL ID-compliant card is that you will be able to use it when traveling commercially or entering federal buildings.

Once you have been cleared for a New Mexico ID card, you will receive a temporary card that is valid for 45 days. Any old ID card or driver’s license will be voided once you receive your temporary card. However, you can use an old ID in conjunction with your temporary ID until your permanent New Mexico ID card arrives in the mail.
