New Hampshire DMV Announces a New Phone Number for REAL ID Information

Concord NH - The New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles is pleased to announce a new phone number available to assist customers with REAL ID questions and information, 603-4-REALID (603-473-2543). Customers can call 603-4-REALID to learn more about REAL ID and the required documents needed to get a REAL ID before they visit the DMV.

“The DMV continues to offer new products and services like 603-4-REALID and Saturday hours to streamline the process of getting a REAL ID,” said DMV Director Elizabeth Bielecki. “Currently, only 30 percent of those eligible for a REAL ID have gotten one and we encourage everyone not to wait until the last minute so as to avoid longer than normal wait times just before the October 2020 deadline.”

Federally compliant identification, like a REAL ID, will be required to board domestic flights after the October 2020 deadline. Getting a REAL ID is voluntary, and other federally compliant identification, such as a passport, may also be used for domestic air travel. However, time is running out and we encourage New Hampshire residents who wish to obtain a REAL ID to do so as soon as possible. REAL ID applications must be submitted in person.

The following New Hampshire DMV locations are open the second Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for REAL ID transactions only: Concord, Dover, Manchester, Nashua, Newport and Twin Mountain.

Additional documentation is required when applying for REAL ID and should be gathered prior to your visit to the DMV. Documentation related to name changes due to marriage, divorce, adoption, etc., must be presented at the time of the transaction.
