Got mine a couple of years ago. No problems. Hubs forgot to renew before his DL expired. For REALid you need a Certified Copy of your Birth Certificate along with some other documentation. Well.... HUBS couldn't find his Birth Certificate. ***NOTE*** IF you don’t have a valid/current/non-expired drivers license you can’t get a copy of your birth certificate in PERSON. (It would be mailed - SNAIL MAIL) So the only workaround was for me request a copy of my spouse's Birth Certificate. (You can get a copy of your spouse's Birth Certificate in person at a Clerk of Courts Office in your State by showing your current Driver's License and Marriage Certificate - then filling out the proper form and paying a fee.) Thennnnn we could go to the DMV and get him renewed with REALID. Life lesson learned? Renew your drivers license before it expires. Know where your social security card and birth certificates are. Or it’s a royal PITA.
