To get a non-driver New York state ID card, submit a completed application form, supporting documents and the required fee, at a Department of Motor Vehicles office, explains the New York State DMV. As of 2015, the fee is between zero and $14.50, depending on age and Social Security status.
To complete the application, provide the requested biographical information, fill out the organ donation and voter registration sections, and sign the application form, indicates the DMV. Provide proof of identity, such as a birth certificate, and a Social Security card or evidence of ineligibility. Upon receipt of all required materials, the DMV issues a temporary identity card at its office and delivers the permanent card by mail approximately two weeks later.
