When you complete the online application:

You can replace your enhanced ID card by visiting any driver licensing office. When you visit the office, bring all of the following:

- MasterCard and American Express credit or debit cards, and some Visa debit cards.
- Credit and debit cards not accepted at Coulee Dam, Davenport, Friday Harbor, Forks, Goldendale, Newport, Republic, or South Bend.
- A vendor-charged convenience fee is added to all transactions paid with a debit or credit card at driver licensing offices.
- If you’re under 18, your parent or guardian must come with you to sign an affidavit.
If you qualify, you’ll get a temporary EID before you leave the licensing office. You should get your new EID within 10 days. If you don’t get your replacement within 45 days, contact us at email@example.com.
