Did you Know?

  • January 22, 2018, passengers who have driver’s licenses issued by a state that is not yet compliant with Homeland Security’s REAL ID Act and that has not received an extension will need to show an alternative form of acceptable identification for domestic air travel. You can check if your state is REAL ID compliant at dhs.gov/real-id-enforcement-brief. 
  • By Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards and prohibits federal agencies, like TSA, from accepting licenses and identification cards for official purposes from states that do not meet these standards.
