Driver’s Licenses Okay as Airport ID for Two More Years
In a past tip, I wrote that due to the activation of part of 2005’s REAL ID Act, a driver’s license might no longer be enough to get you on a plane starting this year.
Well, on Friday afternoon the Department of Homeland Security announced that all airline passengers will be able to continue using their driver’s licenses as check-in identification until January 22, 2018. And according to the report from SF Gate, “Some would have until Oct. 1, 2020.” So, at least for now, you can breathe a sigh of relief!
