Real ID-Compliant Driver's License Deadline Extended to May 3, 2023

05/02/2021 9:36 PM | Anonymous

The Department of Homeland Security announced that Americans now have two more years to obtain a Real ID driver’s license or identification card.  Every U.S. air traveler 18 and older will be required to present a Real ID-compliant license or another acceptable form of identification, such as a U.S. passport or military ID, to board a domestic flight starting May 2, 2023.

Postponing the enforcement of the last phase of the Real ID Act will give motor vehicle departments across the nation more time to process the new credentials after many were closed or reduced services because of COVID-19. Implementation was scheduled to take effect in October.

Less than half of Americans with a license and state identification card have a Real ID-compliant document, generally identifiable by a star in the upper-right corner.
