The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles is bringing its mobile office to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport on Wednesday, May 15 to issue Real IDs.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, federal law requires driver’s licenses or identification cards to be compliant with the Real ID Act of 2005 in order to board a domestic commercial flight, among other federal activities. A South Carolina Real ID has a gold star to indicate that it meets federal standards, according to a news release.

“As the October 2020 deadline approaches, the demand for Real IDs will only increase,” Kim Davis, GSP customer service and community relations manager said in the release. “Bringing the S.C. DMV mobile office to the airport provides an opportunity for GSP customers to update their credentials without the long wait at the DMV. The whole process can be completed in 15 minutes or less.”

The DMV mobile office will be set up in the GSP conference center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to issue Real IDs for people with the correct documentation. South Carolina residents wanting to purchase a Real ID on May 15 must be U.S. citizens and bring original or government-issued copies of the following documentation:

• Proof of identity (government-issued birth certificate or valid U.S. passport)

• Proof of social security number

• Two proofs of current, physical South Carolina address

• Proof of all legal name changes
