Even if you hold a driver’s license from another state, you need to determine if you need a REAL ID from that state (many states are in the same situation and have the same deadline).
Of course you will always need your passport to travel internationally!
*You must have a reason to visit a military installation, and, even with a REAL ID, you may be subject to additional visitor control measures once on site.
New South Carolina driver's licenses and
identification cards, some of which are compliant with
REAL ID, are now available for purchase. There’s been no change in the
price of any card the SCDMV issues. The new cards are valid for no more than eight years.
A REAL ID will be your license or your ID. You are not issued separate cards. Either you will hold a REAL ID license, REAL ID ID (no driving privileges), standard license that says "Not for Federal Identification," or a standard ID (no driving privileges) that says "Not for Federal Identification." A gold star on your license or ID designates it as a REAL ID.
Regardless of whether you buy a REAL ID or not, you must still have an unexpired US Passport to travel internationally.
