GSP hosts REAL ID mobile van

Published on Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is teaming up with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) to bring the agency’s mobile office to the airport May 15.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, federal law requires your driver’s license or identification card to be REAL ID compliant in order to board a domestic, commercial flight, among other federal activities.

A South Carolina REAL ID has a gold star to indicate that it meets federal standards.

“Don’t procrastinate - if you want to purchase a REAL ID, take advantage of shorter lines and do it now,” said Kevin Shwedo, SCDMV’s executive director. “These mobile office opportunities, like the one on May 15th, make it easy to check this off your to-do list.”

GSP hosted the SCDMV mobile office on two previous occasions.

“Bringing the SCDMV mobile office to the airport provides an opportunity for GSP customers to update their credentials without the long wait at the DMV,” said Kim Davis, GSP’s customer service and community relations manager. “The whole process can be completed in 15 minutes or less.”

The SCDMV will be located in the GSP Conference Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to issue REAL IDs for people with the correct documentation.

South Carolina residents wanting to purchase a REAL ID on May 15 must be U.S. citizens and bring original or government-issued copies of the following documentation:

• Proof of identity (government-issued birth certificate or valid U.S. passport)

• Proof of social security number

• Two proofs of current, physical S.C. address

• Proof of all legal name changes

Email [email protected] with additional questions. A REAL ID license is valid for eight years and costs $25. All types of payment are accepted at the mobile office.
