Get a County ID Card

Due to concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Clerk’s Office ID Card services are available by appointment only.

The Clerk’s Office provides Morris County Identification Cards for Gold Star Parents, veterans and senior citizens. They are perfect for those who may not have a driver’s license or just want an additional form of photo identification. Veteran’s ID Cards and Gold Star Parent ID Cards can also be used to enjoy discounts at many participating Morris County businesses.

These cards are used for identification purposes only and may not be accepted by certain agencies that require a state ID such as a New Jersey Driver License or Non-Driver Identification Card.

Photo ID Card services are only available in-person, by appointment only. Please call 973-285-6122 or send us an email.
