Reminder: Make Your Appointment For Your REAL ID

Time for the REAL ID


The Department of Homeland Security is requiring that all domestic air travelers have what’s called a REAL ID no later than October 1, 2020, or alternative forms of identification will be required before you may board a flight. 

The NC Department of Transportation is offering REAL ID’s, and it’s a good idea to go ahead and get this new form of driver’s license as soon as possible. There will certainly be a mad dash to get REAL ID’s as the 2020 deadline draws near.

Find out how easy it is to get the REAL ID – Document requirements can be found at the North Carolina DOT website at

Another tip? You can make an appointment at the DMV, so your wait won’t be very long. 

Get your REAL ID today and it’ll be smooth flying from there.
