The Montana Department of Justice’s Motor Vehicle Division (MVD)
received an extension from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Wednesday,
for the implementation of the federal identification law, REAL ID. The
extension expires October 10, 2018. During this time, Montana drivers’ licenses
are accepted by the Transportation Security Administration to board domestic,
commercial flights and access federal facilities.
MVD Administrator Sarah Garcia said, “This extension gives MVD
time to develop business processes, hire new staff, and acquire the necessary
equipment needed to implement REAL ID. With this extension, MVD is on track to
comply with REAL ID requirements, and also gives Montana citizens time to
prepare for issuance of REAL ID credentials.”
