Vermont to offer Real ID licenses after Jan. 1

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles is going to be issuing a new kind of driver's licenses and non-driver identification cards. Starting Jan. 2, Vermonters will be able to obtain Real ID compliant identification in person at all motor vehicles offices.

Motor Vehicle Commissioner Robert Ide says licenses are no longer just for driving and residents increasingly rely on these documents as proof of identity in their everyday lives.
