Passed by Congress in 2005, the act is intended to prevent identity fraud, and starting on Jan. 22, 2018, fliers who reside in some states, even if they’re flying domestically, will need identification other than a driver’s license to pass through Transportation Security Administration security checkpoints at airports.

Check your ID, and see if it has a star on the right upper corner.

Yeah, do keep this in mind...
The following additional ID I carry will not satisfy 'REAL-ID';
  1. My $280..."enhanced" DL = Passport free travel to USA and Mex (with fingerprinting / RFID encoded License), but not eligible for air or sea transit.
  2. Sentri / Nexus
  3. Global Entry / Trusted Traveler / TSA Pre-Check

None of the above work ... so 'Bring your passport'

I don't think that's right. According to this, DHS trusted traveler cards do count.

OK, the "REAL ID has not taken place YET... Take your chances (I have had only had 14 flights in the last week, and I tried my 'Global Entry / Trusted traveler', and the TSA agent (as usual) said "What's THAT? Produce a Passport" (or valid DL (acceptable today)) or... "get out of line and come back with the correct ID". (I was in TSA Pre-check, which the TSA agent said my Global Entry was ONLY good at the Airline check-in counter to get me stamped for PRE-Check, NOT an acceptable form of ID to Fly...)

As you well know... many variations of interpretations among TSA agents AND BOSSES. I get my fill of hassles and feel no safer in USA... But foreign security seems to have a pretty good handle on it. (Especially Israel !)

Hopefully when REAL ID comes along... so will the TSA information to their 'all-star' employees

I'm not too surprised, as the Federal Site changed security procedures and notifications 2x during my Global Entry application process. I am not amused that DHS FORCES an ID confirmation code on your Cell Phone, since my USA cell phone STAYS in USA while I am traveling internationally. That works out REAL well internationally... .. sending a text security code to a USA based number.

Its interesting how those proposing this legislation want to make things more complicated. I mean they could just make one ID or just embrace the use of existing Real ID compliant documents passports, passport cards, Nexus cards, Sentry cards, or Global Entry cards and be done with it. But no they have to reform all 50 sovereign states and some territories which some are still way behind in modernizing their system for it. I guess the only reason is to avoid the political incorrectness of having people get a federal ID. So they coierce states to "nationalize" state documents instead as they know 89% of Americans can't live with a state issued drivers license.

I've been using a U.S. passport card at TSA checkpoints for around nine years, so I expect that to be accepted as a Real ID.

Technically.. It has taken place, however about 7 states (Including my home state of SC) have gotten exemptions/extensions.. So, their IDs can still be used for all the things listed that won't work in "6 months" (odds are another extension may come)

SC is not implementing it.. They are allowing for people to OPTIONALLY get a RealID DL, but not requiring it. I think it'll cost around $50 or so.. I had to get my birth certificate from my mother for when I get it.

My understanding is that they either are allowing people to enroll for one now, or will shortly, but they won't roll out until next year.

Minnesota is another one, I think, that has been bucking it.

A passport is not the same thing as a Real ID.

HOWEVER, a passport *will* be accepted as identification at an airport for domestic or international travel.

*BUT* if you're smart, you should bring more than one ID just in case the guy working at the TSA desk is an idiot.

I have
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQrESb5DbEw (otherwise known as Kaufmanian) for them just in case.

Beginning October 1, 2020, the federal government will require you to present this upgraded credential or another form of approved identification in order to board a domestic flight or to access secure federal facilities which in Lieu of a US DL is one.. I have DLs with photos for when I'm in other countries. The US international DL is not really internationally that recognized.
