Apply Today: Real ID Requirements Begin May 3, 2023

Real ID

Beginning May 3, 2023, a REAL ID will be required to board domestic flights and visit secure federal facilities such as military bases or courthouses. A California-issued REAL ID driver’s license or identification card meets these new requirements, and is marked with a gold bear and star.

Applying for a REAL ID requires proof of identity, California residency, and a trip to a DMV office. Provide Social Security number on REAL ID application (exceptions may apply).

Wait times are expected to increase as the deadline approaches, so California residents are encouraged to apply now to avoid lines, and upgrade to the REAL ID at no extra cost.

To view a full list of acceptable documents and start your application online, click here—then complete the final step in person at a DMV office.
