REAL ID Virginia Updates

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle reminds its residents that the REAL ID deadline is quickly approaching. Those who are interested in updating their driver’s license to be REAL ID compliant, should begin the process as soon as possible.

To obtain your REAL ID Virginia driver’s license, The VA DMV explains “The process is similar to Virginia’s current driver’s license/ID card application process. All applicants for a REAL ID compliant credential, including current Virginia credential holders, must apply in-person and pay a one-time $10 surcharge in addition to standard fees.”

A list of the following documents is also required in order to update your REAL ID card:

  • Proof of age and identity
  • Proof of Social Security
  • Proof of Virginia residency
