REAL ID Proof of Social Security Number

You must provide your Social Security Number on the DC DMV DL/ID Card application. DC DMV will electronically verify the Social Security Number with the Social Security Administration. If the Social Security Number is verified, no additional documentation is required to prove your Social Security Number.

If your Social Security Number does not verify electronically with the Social Security Administration, you will need to contact the Social Security Administration to have your records updated.

Note: Your full legal name on your Proof of Identity document(s) must match the name associated with the records at the Social Security Administration.

All District residents obtaining a REAL ID credential are required to provide proof of their Social Security Number. If you are not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number, you must obtain a letter from the Social Security Administration indicating you are not allowed or ineligible to obtain a Social Security Number.
