  • Sample SC Drivers License

DHS is giving Minnesota until October 10, 2018, to fully implement REAL ID and comply with federal requirements. Until then, ME driver's licenses will be accepted to board aircraft and access federal facilities.

You do not need a REAL ID-compliant card to do numerous things your current license allows you to do.

PennDOT anticipates that REAL ID-compliant driver's licenses will be available at the customer's option in March 2019.

MVD has partnered with Montana State University Billings to develop a public information campaign to relay information to the public regarding REAL ID compliance.

Congressman Greg Gianforte: "The federal government has granted the state more time to comply with REAL ID requirements".

While you can still change your license to a REAL ID later, on and after October 1, 2020, you must have a REAL ID license or ID, valid US Passport, military ID, or other federally approved identification to board a domestic flight, enter a secure federal building, or visit a military installation.

TSA does not require children under 18 to provide identification when traveling with a companion within the United States.

DHS has been working with states for years around REAL ID compliance and has provided technical assistance, grants, and other support to them.

If you bring all of the required documents now and have a regular (Class D, E, F, or M) license, most people will be eligible to get a REAL ID online in the future. Starting Jan. 22, 2018, the Transportation Safety Administration will require Real ID Act-compliant identification or state-issued ID from states with exceptions, like or, for boarding commercial aircraft for domestic flights. This includes, but is not limited to, military bases and nuclear power plants. These cards must clearly state on their face (and in the machine-readable zone) that it is not acceptable for official purposes and must use a unique design or color to differentiate them from compliant cards.
