REAL ID Compliance

What is Real ID? From the Department of Homeland Security: "Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission's recommendation that the Federal Government "set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses." The Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards." (

Auto Title Express locations can now issue Real ID compliant driver's licenses and ID cards. Use the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles' LOUIE tool to find out what documents you'll need before you visit our office.
