Real ID reminder

Did you know that you will need a Real ID for domestic airline travel starting, October 1, 2020? The deadline for Real ID is getting closer, and the City of Bloomington’s Motor Vehicle Department is available to help.

First, check if you have a Real ID. There will be a gold star in the upper right hand corner if it is a Real ID.

If you still have a standard ID and would like to switch to Real ID, you can do so any time rather than waiting for renewal. To start your Real ID application, go online to You will be taken through the requirements, step-by-step. Completing the online pre-application at home first will save you time when you come to the Motor Vehicle/Deputy Registrar Office, 9930 Logan Avenue South.
