REAL ID Update

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) granted Montana an extension until June 1st, 2019.

MVD has until June 1st, 2019 to submit Montana’s full compliance to REAL ID packet. MVD will submit the full compliance packet to DHS shortly after Montana begins issuing REAL ID compliant credentials.

Schedule your REAL ID appointment on or after Jan. 7, 2019 today! Visit the Montana REAL ID website.

Once DHS approves the full compliance packet, ALL Montana driver license and ID cards will still be accepted as identification for domestic, commercial flights and as identification to access federal facilities until October 2020.

You can find Montana’s status at the DHS website.
