This morning, I Had a #DMV appointment to renew my #DriversLicense before it expires next month. I went ahead & got the #RealID which will be needed to fly domestic & enter certain federal buildings starting in 2020. You must have your birth certificate, social security card and proof of residence for a Real ID. Fyi, They didn’t make copies of my documents they just checked them. The Real ID is $35 and is the same cost as a regular DL. A California ID is $30.
A Ninja felt old as fck at the DMV, It’s way different now. I filled out the renewal paperwork prior to getting there & it turns out Everything is now done electronically. You only have to manually fill out the renewal paperwork If your mailing it in, Otherwise you must do it online. Since I hadn’t done it online, they sent me to a Computer room to do it. The DMV computer room has like 20 computers in it. The computers are in mini standup cubicles & there’s A Lot of people in the room waiting to fill out their info electronically.
So heads up, If you (or an elder family member) need to renew your ID/DL anytime soon mail it in & save your time & energy. Or make sure you fill out your renewal online before you get there. Or you’ll have to do it in a crowded DMV computer room. Also always make an appointment so it will shorten the amount of time your there. Keep in mind, I had an appointment & it Still took me 45 minutes to get in & out.
Please Note: *You have to go inside a DMV to get a #RealID*
