REAL ID will soon be REQUIRED for domestic travel

You may have heard about the star in the corner of new driver's licenses.

Starting October 1, 2021, you must have a REAL ID compliant driver license/ID to fly within the U.S.,
unless you use a U.S. passport or another federally approved form of identification.

UNTIL THAT DATE, a Standard New Jersey driver license is valid for air travel within the U.S.

How do I renew my driver's license or vehicle inspection?
DO NOT RUSH TO RENEW!

There are extremely long lines at the motor vehicle office.
THIS EXPLAINS HOW THE LINES WORK.

My personal experience at the Rahway Office on August 21, 2020:
  • Bring your cellphone!
  • Bring your Social Security card.
    LAMINATED Social Security Cards are NOT ACCEPTED for REAL ID!
  • and, of course, all required documents
  • Arrive at 7 AM and wait on line for the office to open at 8 AM.
    This line will be LONG! It wrapped around the building TWICE!
    I waited 2 hours just to get my "e-ticket" to wait AGAIN!
  • They'll ask for your cellphone number.
  • You'll get the FIRST text immediately to confirm you are in the system
    with your ticket number.
  • THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE OFFICE!
    Wait in your car or run errands near the DMV office.
  • You'll get a SECOND text around 30 minutes before your turn
    "We are almost ready, please make your way back ..."
  • You'll get a THIRD text "Almost your turn".
    I was allowed to enter the office and wait on line to start the process.
  • You'll get a FOURTH text "IT'S YOUR TURN"
    Proceed to the "ID check" clerk specificed to start the paperwork.
  • Once the paperwork is reviewed,
    proceed to your assigned booth for the rest.
    Credit cards are accepted for payment.
