You can get a photo ID card from any motor licence issuer. The cost is $15, or free if you’re a senior 65 years of age and over.
Once you get your picture taken, it will take up to 10 business days to receive the photo ID card in the mail.
Identification and residency requirements
You will need to provide 2 pieces of ID and 2 documents proving your Saskatchewan residency to get a photo ID card. Both pieces of ID must establish your legal name, signature and birth date. Both documents proving residency must show a Saskatchewan address. Here are examples of acceptable documents.
Multiple card versions in use
SGI recently changed card production vendors and began issuing the newest version of the photo ID and Saskatchewan’s driver’s licence cards on April 1, 2016. As a result, there are currently 2 different card versions in circulation that have several minor differences in appearance. Both are completely valid.
Not everyone will receive a new card initially. New photo ID and driver’s licence cards will be issued only to customers whose old card has expired, who are getting a card for the first time, or who need to update information like address or name, etc. It will take up to 5 years before every Saskatchewan driver and photo ID card carrier has the newest card.
If you have any questions about photo ID cards, email us or call our Customer Service Centre at 844-TLK-2SGI (1-844-855-2744).
