Like most likely a lot of the remainder of the US, I am presently staying residence with very, only a few exceptions. My driver’s license nonetheless expires in Might (now prolonged 60 extra days), and I’ve by no means had a RealID. I additionally would not have a presently legitimate passport (it expired and was issued >15 years in the past so can’t be renewed now.) I wish to get a RealID solely as a result of I do not need to be restricted on home flying (not that I ever do it, however nonetheless I would like to have the choice simply in case).
I see that an extension has been granted on license renewals which is sweet I suppose, however all I see about getting a RealID is that you just nonetheless have to enter your bodily DMV. I do not even really know if my native DMV is open, however even whether it is I do not need to be spending time there.
What are the currently-available choices for acquiring a RealID for the primary time in California?
Moreover if the one choice for RealID is in-person, however my license is expiring shortly, do I simply should pay to resume my license now, and pay once more some day sooner or later to get a Actual ID (presumably after the COVID stuff has handed)?
