So, your MA driver’s license is due to renew next month and you’ve been hearing about big changes. What do you really need to do before you get in line at the RMV?
First you need to determine if you need a REAL ID. As long as you have a valid passport you DO NOT need a REAL ID. But you may decide that you want one anyway for the peace of mind of always having it with you.
What is a REAL ID? It's an ID card or driver's license that meets Federal identification standards. After October 1, 2020, a REAL ID or passport is required to enter federal buildings or fly within the United States.
