Here's the ultimate guide to getting your Real ID at the Minnesota DMV. We've simplified the entire process for you so you can save time.
What You’ll Need To Get your Minnesota Real ID
- One document proving identity, date of birth and legal presence in the United States.
- If the name on the identity document is not the same as a person's current name, a name change document must be submitted.
- One document proving social security number.
- If you have not updated your name change with the Social Security Administration, you must do so prior to applying for a Real ID.
- Two different documents proving current residency in Minnesota.
- Must have the applicant's name as used at print and current address in Minnesota. A P.O. Box will not suffice as proof of current residency in Minnesota.
