Riley County residents renewing their driver’s licenses between now and 2020 may need to bring additional documents.
The Real ID Act, which Congress passed in 2005, establishes new security standards for licenses and identification cards to be implemented in 2020 and is meant to detect any attempt by terrorists to use fraudulent IDs.
As of Aug. 1, Kansas started issuing licenses and IDs compliant with the act. People seeking new licenses or IDs must present documentation of a Social Security number in addition to a valid passport or birth certificate. If the names on any two documents do not match, the county requires that people also bring in documentation showing the name change, such as a marriage license or divorce decree.
