Yep.  That's "standard" for renewals.  If you want a Real-ID compliant license, so you can fly on an airplane, you need to make an appointment at a DMV geographically farthest from you, and the most inconvenient time, somewhere in the fall of '22.  Bring proof of 5 vaccinations, a recent (within 15 minutes) negative PCR test, certified by a UL-listed laboratory, wear three masks, and two condoms.

And once you clear all those hurdles, they'll tell you you've been standing in the wrong line - come back next time and try again.

I though the whole process with 7 points of ID and 6 points of proof-of-address were for RealID requirements.

Fuck 'em.  Can't see myself flying anywhere anytime soon anyway.

The REAL ID includes a photo on their facial recognition digital camera, that becomes available for forever use by state.

Under federal law, REAL ID cannot be obtained via the mail- you must show in person. And unless you are a US Citizen, you are not eligible for one.

Yup. You want Real ID you have to go to the DMV with 23 forms of ID, a DNA test and a wad of cash. Pack a lunch.

Yeah, there's an extra charge and documentation requirements for a RealID™️ driver license in NJ.

Frankly it's easier to just get a passport.

ETA Holy Zombie thread, I forgot I even replied to it 🤣

Let me recommend the Passport Card.

Good for ten years.

Isn't Real ID a NJ thing? So this would just be to fly out of NJ, and if you go to Phila airport it shouldn't make a difference?

Or am I way too optimistic?

RealID is a Federal program, and by now I believe required to fly.

Passports are RealID compliant. Most state"s driver's licenses are.  NJ makes you pay extra for the privilege.

Personally, I keep my passport up to date. Along with it you get a "real ID" wallet size card which I use whenever going through the TSA. I would also recommend the Pre TSA Check enrollment. It is easy and you get passed security without much hassle.
