Choosing Your License

When you get a driver’s license in West Virginia, you can choose between a standard license and a Real ID. Real IDs are compliant with the federal regulations set forth in the Real ID Act. When these regulations go into effect in 2020, you will need a Real ID to fly on a plane or enter a federal building. While you don’t need to get a Real ID at this time, many people are getting them so they will be ready when the transition occurs.
