Your REAL ID Checklist

Wondering what to take with you to the DMV? We are here to help.

Our interactive checklist will walk you through each of the documentation requirements, step by step. Just follow the steps, and at the end, you will have a customized checklist of which documents to bring into the DMV with you when you go to get your REAL ID. (The checklist is for your personal use — you will not be asked to present this list to get your REAL ID.)

Using the REAL ID Checklist does not guarantee you will be able to obtain a REAL ID card; it simply helps you learn which documentation to bring in to prove your identity and residency.

DMV does not keep your original documents.
