Know Before You Go: Real ID
Is Your License Ready to Fly?
Starting May 2, 2023, the U.S. Federal Government will require anyone boarding an airplane for domestic travel or entering certain federal buildings to have a "verified" driver's license, state-issued ID card or be required to show additional proof, such as a passport. This federal law is known as "Real ID."
This verification is indicated on your license or ID card by a gold star in the top right corner.
