A Washington State identification (ID) card is valid for 5 years. Check the expiration date on your ID card to find out when it expires.
If you need to update your address, please change your address before you renew your ID card. When you renew, we match your Washington residence address with the United States Postal Service (USPS).
When you get your driver license or ID card, we may ask if you’re a twin or triplet. Answering this question is strictly voluntary.
We share this information with the University of Washington Twin Registry. The Registry will contact you and ask if you’d like to join the Twin Registry. Periodically, as a Twin Registry member you may be invited to participate in scientific studies developed by prominent scientists from around the world. Learn more about this exciting program on the UW Twin Registry website.
