LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – With exactly six months before it will be required to board a plane or enter a federal facility, Arkansas recently surpassed 400,000 REAL IDs issued.
On Friday the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) announced that they have issued 402,963 in total as the October 1 deadline stands six months ahead.
There are currently 1.87 million Arkansans who have a regular license or ID who may still need to upgrade to the REAL ID.
DFA is anticipating a large percentage of those Arkansans will still want to obtain a REAL ID within that six months.
A REAL ID can be obtained at any of the 134 Revenue Offices across the state.
In order to ensure a REAL ID is successfully obtained, they are asking Arkansans to visit ar.gov/REALID before making the trip to the Revenue Office to review the list of documents required.
