CA state Drivers License (DL)
To apply for an original driver license if refugees are over 18, they will need to make an appointment before visiting a DMV office (walk-ins are only accepted at the Driver License Processing Centers).
Identification Card (ID)
DMV issues ID cards to persons of any age. The ID card looks like a driver license, but is used for identification purposes only.
Reduced-fee ID card
Refugees may pay a reduced application fee for an original or renewal identification card because they meet income requirements from a public assistance program. The governmental or non-profit program will give them a completed Verification for Reduced Fee Identification Card form (DL 937) to take to DMV to apply for their reduced fee identification card.
