Do you fly commercially?Your driver's license/ID will need a REAL ID gold star in the upper right corner by May 2023, 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 May 3, 2023, 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 May 2023. 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.
