Drivers’ License Processing Centers were opened to help provide emergency outreach on REAL ID and to help Californians get their federally compliant Identification cards before the new May 7, 2025, deadline. As of December 1, 2022, there are now over 14,757,289 Real I.D. Cardholders in the state.
All 4 temporary Driver’s License Processing Centers across the state, including the Pacoima Office, will close this fall and customers will be relocated to adjacent field offices for transactions.
Due to the expansion of DMV services, which allows for over 90% of transactions to be completed online, Real ID applications and appointments can be initiated virtually.
