Real ID Act

Passed in 2005 by Congress, the Real ID Act is intended to make government-issued identifications more secure. Some states have not yet implemented the requirements of Real ID and have received extensions from the Department of Homeland Security. Currently, 11 states and territories (Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Rhode Island, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands) have neither complied nor have they been granted further extensions. This means that on January 22, 2018 travelers boarding a flight from these states and territories will not be allowed to use their driver’s license as proof of identify, unless their state receives another extension from the Secretary of Homeland Security.
