Millions of people across the United States need to upgrade their driver's license in 2020 to meet Federal ID standard requirements, also known as the Real ID Act
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO GET YOUR REAL ID
To get your Real ID quickly you'll need to:
- Visit your local DMV office with proof of citizenship, proof of social security number, and 2 proofs of address
Each state has slightly different requirements but generally speaking you will need to:
- Make a DMV appointment or show up and be prepared to wait
- Bring Proof of US Citizenship (ie. Passport or Birth Certificate)
- Bring Proof of Social Security Number (must be full number such as on a tax document)
- Bring Proof of Address (many states require 2 pieces of mail, such as utility bills)
- Bring a debit card since many DMV's do not accept credit cards

Pro-tip: To avoid the Real ID rush consider using your passport for a period of time. You will still have the option to use your US passport book or US passport card when traveling through US airports. Make sure your passport is up-to-date.
