Starting January 2019, the Montana Motor Vehicle Division will begin
issuing REAL ID credentials. Residents are not required to get a
Montana REAL ID compliant license or ID but a Montana REAL ID
compliant license or ID or another acceptable form of identification
will be required to fly domestically and access federal facilities by
May 3, 2023.
Alternative options, such as a passport or passport card, are
acceptable forms of identification as well.
If you plan to get a REAL ID, you can now book an appointment online
at MVD REAL ID Appointments. Pay close attention the
required documentation that you’ll need to bring with you to
your REAL ID appointment.
