You are now officially on the clock to get your Real ID. If not, you might not be able to fly.

October 1st marks the one-year countdown until you will need to have a Real ID or another acceptable form of identification to fly domestically. The deadline to update your ID is October 1, 2020.

Most states have identical requirements to update your current driver’s license or ID cards to be Real ID compliant.

Other forms of ID you’ll be able to use to fly include passports and Military ID’s.

I have a military dependent ID, a passport card and a real passport, so I’m skipping the real ID thing, but if you don’t have these and you plan to travel, you better get on it!
