**Attention – The REAL ID deadline has been extended until May 3, 2023.**
Adding REAL ID to your credential requires an in-person visit to an exam station. Appointments are recommended Before your appointment, visit mtrealid.gov to ensure you have all required documents and the latest up-to-date information on Montana REAL ID.
If you use our online scheduler, you must select a location from the list below. If you schedule your REAL ID appointment at any other location, you will not be able to apply for a REAL ID.
Don’t sweat the small things. Select your service and we will accommodate your REAL ID application depending on your license’s expiration date. No need to look for a REAL ID option, because locations issuing REAL ID will increase ALL appointment times by 10 minutes to accommodate the extended process required for REAL ID. Select a service, and we’ll handle the rest!
Applicants obtaining their first or new driver license, upgrading to a commercial license, or obtaining a motorcycle endorsement will need to take both written and road tests.
Appointments can also be made by calling the Customer Care Center at 1 (406) 444-1772 during regular business hours. You may experience shorter wait times by calling during lower call volume days, Wednesday and Thursday.
