Virginia Driver's Privilege Card | Program

A driver privilege card is a driver’s license for non-US citizens. It gives Virginia residents who are not citizens the opportunity to be legal drivers, without requiring proof of the legal presence or U.S. citizenship.

As part of this program, CASA’s AmeriCorps members help with CASA Members with the paperwork and set up appointments for a driver’s privilege card with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV is the entity that issues the Driver’s Privilege Card; CASA does not issue it in-house.

Driver Privilege Card Eligibility

You may be eligible to obtain a driver privilege card if you meet the following requirements:

A driver privilege card is not REAL ID-compliant, so it cannot be used as identification to board a flight or enter a secure federal facility. Driver privilege card applicants are not eligible for a commercial driver’s license.
