About Before your trip

Starting Oct. 1, 2020, travelers will need Real ID-compliant identification cards to board domestic flights
Beginning October 1, 2020, you and your travelers who are 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID or another acceptable form of identification in order to fly
Standard drivers’ licenses will no longer be accepted by TSA at airport security checkpoints starting in October of next year, and we don’t want anyone missing their flight because they weren’t aware of the new federal requirements.
 
REAL IDs are generally marked by a star on the top of the card. Between now and the effective date of the new regulations, we encourage you and your travelers to check your IDs and obtain a REAL ID if you don’t already have one.
 
To obtain a REAL ID, please keep in mind that it requires documentation beyond what is required for most standard drivers’ licenses. Prepare to collect and present several documents to DMV officials that prove your residency and identification.
 
REAL ID compliance varies greatly from state to state. We encourage travelers to seek information directly from the TSA at www.tsa.gov/real-id or their local DMV.
