Mobile DMV office available at NYS Fair

Those attending the 2022 New York State Fair are able to apply for a REAL ID or Enhanced Driver License at a mobile DMV office.

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles mobile office will be located in the Center for Progress Building.

What is a REAL ID, and why do I need it?

Regular drivers’ licenses will no longer be accepted as valid identification to board domestic flights as of May 2023.

Travelers will need a REAL ID or an Enhanced Driver License to fly in the U.S.
