Here’s a tip: if you want to make an appointment to get a Real ID with the Department of Motor Vehicles, try first thing in the morning (around 7 am). Each morning, the DMV releases a new set of appointments, so the earlier in the day you log in, the better chance you have of finding an appointment at a DMV office that is near where you live.
