    Default "Real ID"...

    Apparently this is a thing that hath snucketh up on me. What's the deal? A regular DL isn't sufficient anymore?

    Anyone been through the process? Where does it land on the PITA scale?

    I did mine before Covid, it was pretty simple. Scan/upload some info (current DL, passport, and maybe birth cert and proof of address I think). If your picture on your DL is current enough I think they'll mail you yours. That said, it may be different now.

    The new ID will definitely be needed for any plane travel, unless you have a passport. Here's the rest of the details:

    It was really easy. I think I took a birth certificate and a passport when I renewed my license.

    PIA factor is variable. If you plan on using a birth certificate, it has to be the long form certificate. During my request for a long form, the good folks at SC DHEC found my first name was misspelled in their records. After providing my DD-214, copies of passports (fyi donít send a Diplomatic passport),a certified copy of my driving record and 15 months of thumb twiddling, I now have a correct long form birth certificate.

    I already have a passport, government CAC, government security clearance, Global Entry, CCW permit, Driver's license, Social Security Card, etc. Why can't these folks get together and trust each others' verification so we don't have to do the thing that is renowned for creating frustration and wasting time....going to the DMV.

    It was easy. Better than having to carry your passport for domestic flights.
