On Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., people may update their driver’s licenses with a REAL ID card at a DMV 2 Go event outside the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly. It’s a great way to skip the long, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) lines and get a REAL ID before they’re required in airports.
Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, Virginians will need a REAL ID compliant driver's license or ID card, or another federally approved form of identification (such as a U.S. passport or some military IDs) to board domestic flights or enter secure, federal facilities. All applicants for a REAL ID compliant credential must apply in person and pay a $10 surcharge, in addition to the standard renewal or replacement fees.
