Real ID deadline extended again due to COVID-19 - New Date HERE


If you've been unable to get a travel-compliant Real ID driver's license because of the coronavirus pandemic, you can relax a bit. The deadline has been extended another 19 months. 

On Tuesday, April 27, the Department of Homeland Security once again delayed the full implementation of the law requiring people to have a Real ID in order to board domestic flights and enter some federal buildings.

The department postponed the Real ID deadline from Oct. 1, 2021, to May 3, 2023.
