What’s the Deal with REAL ID?

Beginning on Oct. 1 of this year, you’re going to need a federally regulated REAL ID certification logo on your driver’s license if you want to board an airplane - even if you are just flying domestic. The new regulation, which sprung from findings from the 9/11 Commission Report, is designed to set a nationwide minimum standard for the issuance of drivers licenses by state governments. This nationwide standard is supposed to make it impossible for all non-U.S. Nationals (or U.S. Citizens who don’t have a REAL ID drivers license or ID card) to fly without presenting a much harder-to-counterfeit passport. The goal is to further heighten air travel security across all U.S. domestic flights and help prevent people who should be on a plane from flying on one.
