Information for international students who wish to obtain a Utah Driver Privilege Card

NOTE: International students who qualify for a US Social Security Number may apply for a regular Utah Driver License.

International students who do not qualify for a US Social Security Number can apply for a Utah Driver Privilege Card in one of two ways:

  1. If you have an "Individual Tax Identification Number" (ITIN in English), then you may obtain a "Driving Privilege Card" that expires on your birthdate in one year from issuance. In addition, you must show proof of identity and proof of your Utah address.
  2. If you do not qualify for either a social security number or ITIN, you may obtain a "Driving Privilege Card" that expires on your birthdate in the fifth year after issuance, or on the expiration date of your legal presence document, whichever is sooner. In addition you must show:
      - Proof that you do not qualify for a social security number
      - Proof that you are a citizen of a country other than the United States
      - Proof that you are here legally (a passport with an I-94 attached)
      - Proof of your Utah address
