The SC DMV said more than 3 million licensed drivers in the state may be able to order their REAL ID licenses online as soon as they are available if they bring documents to change their current card to a REAL ID now.

In order to receive a REAL ID, the SC DMV said drivers must provide the following documents:

  • Proof of identity (Birth certificate or valid US passport)
  • Proof of social security number
  • 2 proofs of address
  • Proof of all legal name changes

But here's the biggest takeaway - Real ID's will not be available until 2018.
