The California Department of Motor Vehicles is setting up shop in Fresno Yosemite International Airport.

DMV representatives will staff an information booth in the airport’s central lobby area several days to provide information on the Real ID.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security will require passengers to show a valid passport or other federally approved document, like a Real ID driver license or identification card, to board flights within the United States.

“Fresno Yosemite International Airport is pleased to partner with the California DMV’s outreach efforts to inform air travelers about the Real ID initiative,” said Director of Aviation Kevin Meikle. “We encourage anyone with questions to visit with DMV representatives to review information about how to obtain a Real ID federal compliant Driver License or Identification Card.”

The DMV setup shop Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and they’ll be back on May 17, June 21, July 19 and Aug. 16.

The monthly outreach visits are for informational purposes only.

No applications for Real ID driver licenses or identification cards will be accepted at the DMV information booth.
