What Is REAL ID?
A new type of credential that the RMV will begin to issue on March 26, 2018.
REAL ID comes from the REAL ID Act of 2005, which sets security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and ID cards.
Why do I need REAL ID?
By October of 2020, you will need it to:
•board a plane in the US
•enter a federal building
•If you have a valid passport, you could use that and never need a REAL ID.
Should I get a REAL ID right now?
You don’t need a REAL ID until October of 2020 so just wait and apply for it when your license/ID is due for renewal.
We will not collect any information.
You do not need a REAL ID until October 2020 but you may apply for one after March 26, 2018.
