The REAL ID Act was passed by federal lawmakers in 2005 to enact the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation for a “set standard for the issuance of sources of identification.” This established a minimum security standard for state-issued driver’s licenses.
Beginning May 3, 2023, anyone 18 years and older will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States.
In addition, a REAL ID will be required to enter federal facilities where identification is currently required for entrance.
Courts, Post Offices, Social Security offices do not require identification for entrance, so they are exempt.
Kansas began issuing REAL ID credentials in August 2017. REAL ID is not a required credential but will help ease the check-in process when flying or entering a federally protected facility.
