TO PREVENT THE ADOPTION OF THE FEDERAL REAL ID ACT IN NORTH CAROLINA.

Declares that no state agency is to comply with the requirements of the REAL ID Act. Delineates the specific actions that the Division of Motor Vehicles is prohibited from taking. Asserts that the state will take all reasonable measures to ensure the privacy of its citizens and refrain from selling, renting, or leasing for commercial purposes data that is collected during the administration of driver’s licenses. Prohibits the DMV from storing a database or hard copies of breeder documents such as birth certificates or Social Security numbers. Also prohibits storing the image of the applicant or identification card other than for the purpose of issuing replacement licenses or licenses issued due to an address change within the state. Effective May 1, 2011.
