Getting a Real ID is about to become easier for some California residents! The Automobile Club of Southern California is about to begin offering them at select locations starting later this month!
By the end of this month, AAA members will now be able to schedule an appointment at one of 19 Auto Club locations throughout the region to obtain a REAL ID driver's license under a new pilot program.
According to Steve Gordon, DMV Director, he stated "The DMV continues to streamline its processes and incorporate technology to become more mobile and better serve its customers through more convenient service options, We hope our partnership with the Automobile Club of Southern California will prompt its members to get their REAL ID now and not wait until the last minute.”
The deadline to get the approved document that will allow Americans to board a flight in the U.S. or access federal facilities is now May 3rd, 2023. To get your Real ID through Auto Club, members will have to fill out the application and upload documents at REALID.dmv.ca.gov. Then you will need to schedule an appointment at participating AAA location and pay the usual driver's license or identification card fee.
Here's a list of the Auto Club locations you can choose from:
- Costa Mesa
