  1. The PR campaign for the REAL ID is absurd. If you have a passport, you’re okay other than being another form of ID to carry, which should be the first headline of all these articles. They fear-monger so hard that you’d think you won’t be able to function without it.

    My home state of MN wasn’t even compliant until recently and now they fear a run on the poor DMV if you need one. Given all the application time it now takes, they’ve actually shortened the daily window of service so they can properly process all the added paperwork.

    Just wish they’d given this much attention to matters that are worth it.

    • It is annoying and you should be able to do it online really. I just renewed my license a few months back and completely flaked on this. You think they would make a point to make sure you go ahead and do it then.

      I think I’ll probably still get one just so I don’t have to take my passport everywhere but I shudder thinking about sitting in the DMV again lol
