What documentation will be required when I decide to get a Real ID card?
When Oregon DMV begins to issue Real ID cards, you will need to bring in documents to verify:
- Your identity and legal presence, such as a U.S. government-issued birth certificate or valid U.S. passport.
- Your Social Security number, such as your Social Security card.
- Your address, such as a utility bill and a vehicle registration card.
Additional information about required documentation will be available in the future. Your documents will be verified and scanned and the copies stored securely for 10 years. Original documents will be returned to you.
When will Real ID cards be available?
Oregon DMV will begin issuing Real ID cards in mid-2020. If you do not plan to fly domestically or access secure federal facilities, or if you already have a valid U.S. passport (or passport card), you may want to wait until it is time to renew your current Oregon Driver License or ID card to avoid the initial rush.
What is the cost of a Real ID card?
Customers will pay the standard fee for replacement, renewal or original issuance of a driver license or identification card, as well as an additional Real ID fee, which is yet to be determined. This fee will be based on the cost of issuing Real ID cards.
I already brought in identity documents to receive my standard Oregon Driver License. Will I have to bring them in again to receive a Real ID license?
Yes, federal Real ID regulations require Oregon DMV to verify and copy the documents you present to prove your identity, Social Security number, and Oregon residency, even if you already have an Oregon Driver License or ID card.
What if I am unable to bring in the required documentation to obtain a Real ID Card?
You still might be eligible for a standard Oregon Driver License or ID card, since the requirements for these are different.
