REAL ID - postponed until May 7, 2025

The Department of Homeland Security has extended the REAL ID enforcement date to May 7, 2025. According to DHS, the extension is necessary, in part, to address the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the ability to obtain a REAL ID driver's license or identification card. REAL ID progress has been significantly hindered by state driver's licensing agencies having to work through backlogs created by the pandemic.

Beginning May 7, 2025, every traveler over the age of 18 will need to present 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.

The REAL ID Act was passed by Congress in 2005 to establish minimum security standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards. All 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and four of five U.S. territories covered by the Act and related regulations are issuing REAL ID-compliant driver's licenses and identification cards.
