REAL ID coming in October 2020

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 by Tai Moses

Starting in October 2020, travelers 18 years and older who use their driver’s licenses as ID when flying will need to have a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license in order to board a plane. A valid passport is also an acceptable form of identification. In Texas, REAL ID-compliant identification cards have a gold star in the upper right corner. Visit the TSA website for more information about the REAL ID program.
