Registry Services General Information


Effective 5/7/2025, a new federal law goes into effect requiring a new type of identification – REAL ID – for anyone 18 years and older flying within the United States or entering a Federal building that requires identification.

After 5/7/2025, a standard license will NOT be acceptable to pass through domestic airport security checkpoints. You will need a REAL ID or another acceptable form of identification, such as a valid passport, federal government PIV card or US military ID.

REAL IDendorsem*nts for a MA Driver’s License or MA State ID can be processed at AAA branch locations for AAA members only, but you will need to present certain physical documents to prove your identity. All Massachusetts members interested in obtaining a REAL ID must refer to the Massachusetts RMV website for complete information, start their application online, and see a list of acceptable documents that must be physically presented during your transaction. If your license transaction requires a new photo, one will be taken by the RMV system. Please note we cannot use user-submitted photos, or photos from a mobile phone for a RMV transaction.

Note: If you need to renew in person (required eye test, name change, upgrade to Real ID, etc.), you can start your application online but must not submit payment online. When renewing in person, payment must be provided at the time of your appointment.

If you can renew online, you may do so by completing your renewal on theRMV website.
