THE REAL ID ACT and January 22, 2018
In 2005 The REAL ID Act was passed by congress in “setting standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” At the time of this writing, there are states that are compliant, states with extensions, grace period states, and non-compliant states. If you are planning to fly on a commercial domestic flight on or after January 22, 2018, you should determine the status of the state that issued your license by going to the US Dept of Homeland Security web site and search for REAL ID to see if your state is in compliance since participation by states is voluntary. Travelers who do not have a license from a compliant state or a state that has not been granted an extension will be asked to provide alternate acceptable identification like a valid passport to board domestic commercial aircraft. State-issued enhanced drivers licenses (EDLs) provide travelers with a low-cost, convenient alternative for boarding domestic commercial aircraft, entering the United States from Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean through a land or sea port of entry while also serving as a permit to drive. If you have a standard Arizona driver’s license, it will be acceptable for boarding domestic flights until October 1, 2020 at which time you will be required to have an Arizona Voluntary Travel ID which you can obtain at the AZ MVD. A passport will always be acceptable identification.
