Driver's License/Photo ID Number
Where can I find my Driver's License/Photo ID number?
Your eight (8) digit Driver's License or Photo ID number is located on your Driver's License, Photo ID, Learner's Permit and on most correspondences from PennDOT. See the samples below.
Your Driver's License or Photo ID number is also printed on the bottom-left corner of your "Pennsylvania Driver License Renewal Application" or "Pennsylvania Photo Identification Card Renewal Application."
Additionally, your Driver's License or Photo ID number can be found on the old Driver's License or Photo ID card returned to you when you had your new photo taken.
You may also be able to obtain your Driver's License number from your insurance company. If you are unable to obtain your Driver's License number or Photo ID number from any of these suggested alternatives,
please call the Customer Call Center at 1-800-932-4600 (from inside PA) or 717-412-5300 (from outside PA).
You will be asked a series of questions to establish your identity in order to receive your Driver's License or Photo ID number.
