Hit A Home Run With A REAL ID

Nearly 17.3 million Californians now have a REAL ID, an increase of 143,485 from the previous month, according to California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) data. 

As baseball season gets into full swing this April, Californians can easily spring into action and hit a grand slam when they get a REAL ID. 

“Break out the peanuts and Cracker Jack this season and upgrade to a REAL ID to make air travel and security as easy as 1, 2, 3 and you’re out,” said DMV Director Steve Gordon. 

To apply for a REAL ID, click here, fill out an online application and upload their documents, according to officials. 

Customers must visit a DMV office and bring their uploaded documents to complete the application. 

By starting the process online, it should only take about 15 minutes in the office, added officials. 

Customers need to provide:

  • Proof of identity* – One original or certified document (example: valid passport, birth certificate) *Legal name change document(s) is required if name on proof of identity is different from the name on the other documents (example: marriage certificate, adoption papers).
  • Proofs of California residency – Two documents, paper copies (example: utility bill, bank statement).
  • Social Security number (exceptions may apply).

There is no need to wait for the federal enforcement date of May 2025, which requires a REAL ID or other federally approved document to board flights within the United States and access secure federal facilities. Doing it now means more time doing the things you want to do.
