The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office at Queens College (located in Queens Hall) will host Student Walk-In Days on Wednesday, November 30 and Thursday, December 1 from 7:30 am to 4 pm. All Queens College students, as well as faculty and staff, can take this opportunity to obtain or upgrade to a REAL ID or Enhanced ID.
With six months to the federal deadline, according to the DMV, travelers will not be able to fly domestically within the United States without a REAL ID, an Enhanced ID, or a passport after May 3, 2023. Visit their website for more information about the federal requirements.
Information Provided by the DMV:
The federal law requires those who are applying for a REAL ID to do so in person. Many DMV offices require customers to make a reservation. To upgrade to a REAL ID, you will need the following original documents (Photocopies are NOT acceptable):
- Proof of Social Security Number (Example: U.S. Social Security Card, W2, or Social Security Ineligibility Letter), and
- Proof of Date of Birth (Example: Passport, Passport Card, or Birth Certificate), and
- Two proofs of NYS Residency (Example: Current NYS Permit, Driver License or Non-Driver ID Card with current address, DMV Statement of Identity and/or Residency by Parent/Guardian MV-45, U.S. College ID Card with official transcript, Bank Statement, paystub, postmarked mail, etc.)
