The REAL ID Act is a federal law that affects how states issue driver’s licenses and ID cards if they are going to be accepted for federal purposes, such as boarding domestic flights or entering secure military installations or federal facilities that require ID. Beginning May 3, 2023 the federal government will require you to present a REAL ID compliant credential, or another federally approved form of ID, in order to board a domestic flight or enter a secure federal facility.




All applicants seeking to obtain an ID or driver’s license, including current Virginia license or ID holders, must provide DMV with physical documentation of:

  • Identity (e.g. unexpired U.S. passport or  U.S. birth certificate)
  • Legal presence (e.g. unexpired U.S. passport or U.S. birth certificate)
  • Full Social Security Number (e.g. Social Security card or W-2 form displaying full number)
  • Two (2) Proofs of Residency (e.g. valid Virginia driver’s license, recent utility bills, mortgage or rental lease agreements displaying current residential street address, not a P.O. Box)


All documents MUST be the originals. NO photocopies will be accepted.
