ONT Hosts DMV For Education, Outreach

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be visiting Ontario International Airport (ONT) a few times a month to help educate travelers about new identification requirements that will be taking effect next year.

The information booths will be located post-security every second and fourth Wednesday and Friday of the month. They will allow for travelers to ask questions and get information about a new law taking effect in October of 2020, which will require all persons boarding a plane in the United States to show a valid passport or other federally-issued form of ID, such as a REAL ID driver license or ID card.

“We’re pleased to partner with DMV in raising awareness of REAL ID and how important it is going to be for the traveling public to update their driver license or identification card,” says Mark Thorpe, CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). “These information booths are one more example of our commitment to making travel as convenient as possible for our customers.”
