Real ID Overview
Beginning Oct. 1, 2021, a Real ID-compliant driver’s license, permit, or identification card will be required to board commercial airplanes or enter certain federal facilities unless you present a Department of Homeland Security-approved document. A Real ID meets federal government requirements for driver’s licenses, identification cards, and learner’s permits.
Do you already have a Real ID? If you have a star in the upper right-hand corner of your driver’s license, permit, or identification card, you have a Real-ID compliant license.
To upgrade to Real ID, all customers must visit a BMV branch and bring the required documents . Only original versions or certified copies of the required documents will be accepted.
