The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is rolling out the state’s REAL ID cards which meet the Obama administration’s requirements for access to airports, restricted federal buildings, military bases and more. It costs $25 and is valid for up to eight years.

Most people shouldn’t need the REAL ID card for another few years.

With the state now offering a credential that complies with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said it will consider current Arizona driver licenses and IDs valid through Oct. 1, 2020, for travel by commercial aircraft and access to secure federal facilities.

Those applying for a first-time Arizona driver license or ID card can get a Voluntary Travel ID at any MVD office or at any of the 24 Authorized Third Party driver license providers around the state.

Beginning Friday, residents can convert their current driver licenses to the Voluntary Travel ID at an MVD office must make appointments at To start, appointments can be made at eight offices in Phoenix, Tucson, Prescott and Flagstaff. More offices will be added over time.

Current driver license holders can also convert to a REAL ID card at any of the 24 authorized third party driver license providers around the state without the need for an appointment.

Based on federal guidelines, to get an Arizona REAL ID card, an applicant must supply:

  • one document to establish birth or legal presence such as a certified birth certificate, valid U.S. passport or valid immigration documents;
  • one document to confirm Social Security information, such as a Social Security card or a W-2 form;

  • All residency documents must have current address.

    Because state law gives residents the choice to get a REAL ID card, newly issued credentials that don’t comply with requirements in the federal REAL ID Act will be marked with the phrase “Not for federal identification,” as called for by the federal law. Even so, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said these credentials will still be accepted until Oct. 1, 2020.


    1. valid for “Federal Identification” wonder if the “O”man meets these requirements… here we go again…

    2. I don’t want to hear anymore talk from those that have such a low I.Q. that they still believe that under our current Tyrannical, Dictatorial, Oppressive, Authoritarian, Totalitarian, Politically Correct Rulers that we are still the “land of the free” and have the “best governments” on the planet, as we have become just like other communistic nations people that are under control and ruled by the government’s of our once great country. This is just another piece of costly “show me your papers” identification that even the Radical Muslim Terrorist’s and Criminal, Illegal, Alien, Invaders can get with some of the PAPERS/FORMS that they required to get these cards.

      This is just another “Un-Constitutional Direct Tax” levied on “we the people” and that will eventually turn into a “Poll Tax”, (if you don’t know what a Poll Tax is. Look it up and while at it see how many of your Constitution Right’s you have seeded to our lousy government’s).

      Best government’s on the planet, NOT EVEN CLOSE, and at Super Sonic Speed becoming one of the MOST RESTICTIVE as far as our Constitutional Right’s go……..GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP.

    3. Also do not want to hear anymore B.S. about how we will “not give in to Terrorist’s”, as that is what is happening with having to get the this card and pay a $25.00 TAX, which in NO WAY proves anything except that you are a resident of a state.

    4. well dough they must be handing out jackets in hell today – I agree with most of what you say. They haven’t tagged us like a cow for control ‘yet’ but it’s just around the bend and that little chip will be implanted – regardless of who’s elected. I don’t like it but think it will be Hilary.. God Bless America – God Bless Israel – Maranatha.

    5. I got my new one this past summer when we bought a new house and changed our address. Our’s look similar but there are differences. Wonder if I have to get the “new” or wait to be denied access our taxpayer provided buildings. Better not as I have already ponied up the doe!
