REAL ID Documentation Revised to Reflect New Enforcement Date
The MA RMV has revised the REAL ID documentation and Mass.Gov/RMV website to reflect the new full enforcement date of May 3, 2023. The following REAL ID documents have been updated and are available online: Identification Documents Checklist (LIC115); Driver’s Manual; and REAL ID vs. Standard ID Flyer. Please continue to encourage customers to obtain REAL IDs.
Identification Documents Checklist (LIC115)
This form has been updated online and a downloadable copy is AVAILABLE HERE. The revised version has a date of “0521” in the bottom right corner. Please recycle/destroy any copies you have of the old version and begin using the new version immediately.
A revised May 2021 version has been posted online. Also, updated stickers and inserts will soon be printed for the March 2020 hard copies, which will still be used.
REAL ID vs. Standard ID Flyer
This has been updated online and color copies will be mailed to each RMV Service Center for display.
RMV REAL ID Website
In addition, all pages on Mass.Gov/RMV that reference REAL ID have been revised.
Beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license or identification card, or another TSA-acceptable form of identification, for domestic air travel and to enter certain federal facilities. The REAL ID enforcement date was extended from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023 because of COVID-19.
