What is Real ID??
REAL IDs set the requirements for state driver’s licenses and identification cards to be accepted for federal purposes such as boarding an airplane for domestic travel or entering certain secure federal facilities. REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards are currently available in Minnesota. Starting Oct. 1, 2020, you will need a REAL ID, Enhanced driver’s license or ID or passport to board domestic flights or enter federal facilities.
