Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is teaming up with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) to help travelers prepare for the upcoming changes by bringing one of the agency’s mobile offices to the airport July 18.
The REAL ID Act passed by Congress in 2005 set the standard for state driver’s license and ID cards to be accepted by the Federal Government to enter a federal building, visit a military base, and board a domestic, commercial flight. A South Carolina REAL ID has a gold star to indicate that it meets federal standards.
The SC DMV will be located in the GSP Conference Center from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to issue REAL IDs for people with the correct identification. South Carolina residents wanting to purchase a REAL ID on July 18 must be U.S. citizens and bring original or government-issued copies of the following documentation:
- Proof of identity (government-issued birth certificate or valid U.S. passport)
- Proof of social security number
- Two proofs of current, physical S.C. address
- Proof of all legal name changes
For a complete list of the documents accepted for each category above, visit www.scdmvonline.com and look for the United States Citizens’ Checklist (SCDMV Form MV-93). You can also email REALID@scdmv.net with additional questions. A REAL ID license is valid for eight years and costs $25. All types of payment are accepted at the mobile office.
