Non-driver Identification Cards
Because most establishments require a driver's license for identification, an official Commonwealth of Pennsylvania identification card can be obtained by you if you are a non-driver. Similar in appearance to a driver's license, the official commonwealth identification card is accepted as a bona fide form of personal identification.
To obtain a non-driver identification card, you may:
Surrender your driving privileges for medical reasons simply by completing Form DL-54a and mailing it to the address listed on the form--The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will then mail you a new non-driver photo identification card; or
Any Pennsylvania driver who voluntarily surrenders his/her driver’s license for medical reasons can obtain a photo ID free of charge. For all others, including those who never received a license, there is a $10 fee assessed to you.
