ID.me provides the following services for the California DMV:
We create secure online DMV accounts with multi-factor authentication (MFA) (also known as two-factor authentication, or 2FA). All California residents who apply for a new driver’s license online must secure their account with MFA to ensure the account is only accessed by its owner.
We also pre-screen documents for REAL ID applications. Residents seeking a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license can pre-screen their identity documents. This optional process allows you to take advantage of the Express Experience when you go to your REAL ID appointment at a DMV field office.
