SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – If you have any errands to take care of at the DMV, officials are warning people to get there early.

The DMV says its lines are about to get a whole lot longer by the summer. The reason why? The “Real ID” law.

Starting Oct. 1, 2020, Californians without a federally acceptable form of ID – like a passport or passport card – will need a new kind of ID card to get on a plane.

In total, 27 million people will need to get one if they plan on flying using their California driver’s license or ID. DMV officials say only about one in three of that number will need a Real ID.

As of two months ago, just three million have actually taken the time to get it done.
