[ARCHIVED] Department of Homeland Security Extends REAL ID Deadline


The Department of Homeland Security is extending the REAL ID full enforcement date from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023 due to circumstances resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The pandemic has impacted states' ability to issue REAL-ID compliant driver's licenses, with many driver's licensing agencies still operating at limited capacity.  Beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver's license or identification card, state-issued enhanced driver's license, or another TSA-acceptable form of identification at airport security checkpoints for domestic air travel.
