Real ID becoming a reality for Ohio Motorists
Beginning October 1, 2020, the federal government will no longer consider standard driver licenses and identification cards as sufficient forms of identification. A federally compliant driver license, identification card or another acceptable form of identification such as a military ID or U.S. Passport – will be required to board a commercial flight, or enter a secure federal building.
To get a compliant driver license, your local BMV must verify the following documents:
- Birth Certificate or U.S. Passport/Passport Card
- Social Security Card or most recent W-2 or 1099 with the full social security number
- Two proofs of Ohio street address: utility bills, credit card/bank statements
- Proof of legal name changes: marriage license(s)/divorce decree(s).
Customers will be issued an Ohio Interim Documentation form which will serve as the temporary driver license/ID card. A new permanent compliant license will be sent through the mail in about 10 business days.
The Ohio compliant card and standard card cost the same. Driver licenses and identification cards will continue to be valid for four years and require a new photograph with every renewal.
More information about document requirements, including a complete list of acceptable documents, can be found on the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles website at https://www.bmv.ohio.gov/NEWDL-ID/.
