The law does not require an applicant to have a SSN to apply for a standard license or non-driver ID.
However, the MVC has proposed regulations that would require applicants without a Social Security Number (SSN) who do not have an ITIN to provide a letter of ineligibility from the Social Security Administration (SSA). This requirement is out of reach for most undocumented immigrants in New Jersey.
The Let’s Drive NJ coalition is urging the MVC to allow individuals to sign an affidavit to their ineligibility for a SSN rather than go to the federal SSA for a letter of ineligibility.
