    To fly on airlines in the USA after 10/01/2020, you'll need "Real ID." Have you got it yet?

    On October 1, 2020, travelers will need a "REAL ID-compliant" driver's license, US passport, US military ID or other accepted identification to fly within the United States. The REAL ID Act established minimum security standards for the issuing of state licenses and their production.

    A Real ID-compliant form of identification requires the following pieces of data:

    • Full legal name
    • Signature
    • Date of birth
    • Gender
    • Unique identifying number
    • Principal residence address
    • Front-facing photograph of the applicant
    Compliant IDs must also feature specific security features intended to prevent tampering, counterfeiting, or duplication of the document for fraudulent purposes. The cards must also present data in a common, machine-readable format (bar codes, smart card technology, etc.). Although the use of wireless RFID chips was offered for consideration in the proposed rulemaking process, it was not included in the latest rulemaking process.[28] DHS could consider additional technological requirements to be incorporated into licenses after consulting with the states. In addition, DHS has required the use of RFID chips in its Enhanced Driver's License program, which the Department has proposed as an alternative to REAL

    yes, almost every other state has had it, because it was supposed to be enacted years ago.

    California refused to comply, so they are (as usual) way behind the game...

    Nope, license ain't due for renewal for another year and a half or so (California).... might get one unintentionally though, because I've been planning to acquire a CDL-A sometime soon.


    Also heard from mom that dad renewed his Cali license but forgot to check some box or something and got a "non-REAL" ID renewal by mistake

    My wife and I got ours together last Oct. Looks like California DMV got their act together so long as you have scheduled an appointment. The person at the door checked that you had all the stuff required. My number got called out while my wife was still sorting through her bills with address on and we were both done and out the door in less than 10 minutes.

    A few months earlier I went to pick up custom plates without an appointment. I had to wait almost 6 hours, half of those were outside where the queue went back around three sides of the building.

    Yeah gotta have it for my job, HQ is in Canada and I end up flying there 3-4 times a year.
    Easy for guys, the ladies have to have proof of every name change so need copies of all marriage and divorce docs in addition to the birth certificate.

    In New York we have a choice to go REAL or regular. I opted out, and in doing so, wasn't required to update my photo and I simply submitted the info over the Web.

    Rick,

    I can accurately answer that for you:

    It's where they implant a mark on your right hand or forehead which contains a code that matches the chip in your driver's license. This represents two forms of ID. If the codes in the mark and chip don't match, this is what they will do to you at the airport terminal:
