REAL I.D. Explained

The Federal REAL ID Act of 2005 set new standards for the issuance of driver licenses and ID cards. REAL ID was created in response to the 9/11 Commission recommendation that the U.S. improve its system for issuing identification documents.

The Department of Homeland Security developed REAL ID standards to improve the integrity and security of state-issued driver licenses and ID cards. These standards help fight terrorism and reduce fraud.

REAL ID licenses and ID cards have a star in the upper right corner.

Don’t Get Caught Without Your REAL ID. Starting May 3, 2023, every U.S. resident must present a REAL ID compliant driver license or state ID card to board commercial flights or enter federal buildings.

If your driver license or state ID card is not REAL ID compliant, don’t wait! Make your appointment soon and get your REAL ID ahead of the deadline.
