To get a REAL ID license or identification card, people will need to present documents to verify their identity, such as a birth certificate, an unexpired passport, a social security card or other options. Proof of Louisiana residency through at least two documents verifying a home address, such as a phone bill or utility bill, also will be required.
To comply with the federal law, the Office of Motor Vehicles will scan the documents into a database and store them. When drivers opt out of a REAL ID-compliant license or identification card, the agency will be barred from copying or scanning into a database any of those documents.
A REAL ID driver’s license or identification card will feature a gold circle with a star cutout, according to the Office of Motor Vehicles, while a non-compliant license or card will bear the words “not for federal identification.”
