Feature

Beginning Oct. 1, all residents of the United States who want to continue to use their driver’s license as their chosen form of identification for air travel must obtain a license with a Real ID designation. Those who haven’t acquired a Real ID and don’t have a valid U.S. passport will not be allowed to board flights as these will be the only two acceptable forms of identification for travel, even domestically.

The Real ID Act passed in 2005 after the terrorist attacks in 2001 in order to increase the standards of security for both domestic and international air travel. The requirements to obtain a Real ID vary by state, but can involve making an appointment with your local DMV; furnishing documentation such as your original birth certificate or social security card; and/or providing proof of residency via a utility bill or phone bill.

Real IDs are mailed to recipients and feature a gold or black star in the upper right corner. If you’ve renewed your license in the past few years, it is likely your new license was automatically printed as a Real ID as the majority of states have issued them for years. Oregon and Oklahoma are the two remaining states not automatically enacting this process, but they plan to do so Aug. 2, and Sept. 18, respectively.
