1. Make Sure You Are Eligible for a “Real ID” Card:
To be eligible for a "real ID" card, you must be a U.S. citizen or have a valid U.S. passport. You must also provide your Social Security number and proof of residency in the form of a utility bill, bank statement, or another government document.
2. Gather the Required Documentation:
To gather the required documentation, you will need to bring your U.S. passport, Social Security card, and proof of residency to the DMV. If you do not have a U.S. passport, you can get a "real id" card by bringing two forms of identification instead of one.
3. Make an Appointment at the DMV:
To make an appointment at the DMV, you can visit their website or call them directly. Appointments are strongly recommended, as walk-ins may not be able to get a "real ID" card if all of the required documentation is not present.
4. Go to the DMV and Present Your Documentation:
When you go to the DMV to get your "real ID" card, you will need to bring your documentation with you. You will also need to pay the required fees, which vary depending on which state you live in. Once you have completed these steps, you will receive your "real ID" card.
5. Pay the Required Fees:
The fees for a "real ID" card vary depending on which state you live in, but they are typically around $30. You will need to pay these fees when you go to the DMV to get your "real ID" card.
6. Receive Your “Real ID” Card:
Once you have completed all of the steps and paid the required fees, you will receive your "real ID" card. This card will have your name, photo, and other identifying information on it. You will need to keep this card with you whenever you fly or enter certain buildings.
