Do you fly commercially?Your driver's license/ID will need a REAL ID gold star in the upper right corner by Oct. 1, 2021, to fly if you don’t have a different TSA-approved identity document like a passport or military ID. The deadline has been extended to October 2021 due to COVID-19.
You will also need a REAL ID gold star to enter a federal building that requires ID or a nuclear facility after October 2021. To get your REAL ID gold star, you will need to visit us in person and bring additional documents with you. Find out more about Real ID.
