In order for me to get gold star on license I needed my drivers license, birth certificate, social security card and marriage certificate and something with my signature on it. I used my credit card.
That is what I needed. Marriage license to show how I got my current name.
I have it all in one place and have used it for other things. Worth keeping it all together.
I almost didn't pass eye test. Freaked me out. Cataract surgery today.

If you have a passport, you do not need the newer real ID license or if you do not travel by air, you do not need the Real ID license.
Many people are panicking and getting the Real ID which they will never need or use.

@CARMIE In my state, there is no choice. All renewals as well a new drivers are required to have the gold hologram on the license. This started in my state in 2017.

You cannot depend upon responses here. You just have to look up your state's requirements on its motor vehicle site. All the info will be there.

In Virginia it’s optional. To fly or enter Federal buildings you wil need the Real ID or a passport or passport card or other federally accepted form of ID and they are listed on the state’s DMV site.

@CherryHugs I just went last Friday, I live in NYC, I went with my sister and two nieces, we were there for four hours! I took my birth certificate ( original no copies), my driver's license, Social Security Card, and a bank statement. You must have a document that has your whole given name, including your middle name not just initial, if you have a different last name due to marriage you will need your marriage license or passport. You should take more than you think you need, some people were turned away because they didn't have all their documents.
