Types of Identification cards: Mass IDs and Liquor IDs

The RMV issues ID cards for customers who do not have a driver's license: a Massachusetts Identification (Mass ID) card or Liquor ID card.

Mass ID

The RMV can issue a Mass ID to people who do not have a Massachusetts driver's license. A Mass ID looks like a driver's license, but it does not extend any driving privileges. A Mass ID is an official form of identity, signature, and age in Massachusetts.

To obtain a Mass ID, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You are at least 14 years of age.

  • You do not hold a valid driver's license in any jurisdiction.
