License Renewals- Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL) and REAL ID.

With new requirements for identification looming and hundreds of thousands of licenses up for renewal this year, there’s an unnecessarily high level of confusion and anxiety for the public. The following is a breakdown of key information.

         1- Starting October 1, 2020, a standard New York Driver’s License will NO LONGER be sufficient for access to Federal Buildings or for boarding flights, neither international nor domestic (in country).

        2- Starting October 1, 2020, a REAL ID or an Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL) will each be sufficient for proof of identification to gain access to a Federal Building. Either of these proofs of ID will also be sufficient to board domestic flights.

        3- The EDL is sufficient proof of identification to travel into the US from Canada or Mexico, by land.

        4- There is no additional cost for a REAL ID if you ‘upgrade’ within 30 days prior to the expiration of your current license.

        5- The EDL bears a fee of $30.00 in addition to the standard license fee of $64.50.

        6- Each of these ‘upgraded’ forms of identification require additional proofs of identification as follows:

                       a. Original Birth Certificate or Valid Passport

                       b. Original Social Security Cards or W2, 1099

                       c. Proof of names changes , if name is different than Birth Certificate

                                            i. Marriage Certificates

                                           ii. Divorce Certificates

                       d. Proof of Residency- needs 2 proofs of living address

                                           i. One utility bill
