Announcing Free California DMV Assistance to Help with the Real ID Transition
Today, we're thrilled to announce something our entire team is proud of: We're making our DMV appointment and assistance services free for everyone in California!
Our mission as a company has always been to make government services more accessible and to help governments themselves. The Real ID switch is daunting for every state in the US, especially California.
We're making this announcement to specifically help more Californians better prepare for their DMV visit and get their Real IDs painlessly before the October 2020 deadline.
Nearly 75% of all licensed Californians still need to get their Real ID, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The California DMV has put together fantastic resources to help residents of California understand exactly what they need on their DMV visit, and their Real ID specific website even has a great chatbot you can use. Start there!
However, if you need after-hours support or just want to live chat with us to get faster help, we're here! We don't want you to be discouraged or overwhelmed when it comes to the Real ID switch - and we understand that sometimes that means just talking to a real person by phone, chat, or email.
In addition, we'll still help you find a good appointment option. Typically our team of personal assistants will spend a couple days trying to find you a convenient appointment or faster appointment. We used to charge around $25 for this service; now it is free.
Lastly, as a California resident, you can also take advantage of our line waiting concierge service. If you don't have the time to wait for an appointment, we can typically save you 3-4 hours of time. Our concierge will typically be the first one in line at the DMV, so you can stroll in at opening time as the first one in and the first one out.
