Q: What documents do I need to obtain a REAL ID?
There are a few types of documents that you will need to bring with you when you visit a driver’s license station to obtain your REAL ID. Because the REAL ID is made to be more secure than a standard driver’s license, you may need to provide more documents than you would if you were obtaining a standard license or ID card. The documents you will need are:
- One document to prove your name, date of birth, and authorized presence
- One document to prove your social security number
- Two documents to prove your Montana residency
- One document to prove your name change (if applicable)
