REAL ID coming to Alfalfa County

The Alfalfa County Tag agency will have their REAL ID system installed on Thursday, Oct. 15.

REAL ID compliant driver licenses and identification cards have a gold star in the upper right-hand corner of the license to indicate it is REAL ID compliant. This is the only physical difference from a non-compliant credential, but it allows airport and federal officials to quickly identify the card.

You will be given a temporary paper identification during your visit to get a REAL ID. Your official REAL ID will be mailed to you in 5-7 business days.

Those under 18 are not required to get the REAL ID.
