The deadline for domestic airline passengers to secure a Real ID driver’s license for use as identification at the airport has been moved back one year. Enforcement is now due to begin on Oct. 1, 2021.

President Trump said Monday that the previous deadline of Oct. 1, 2020, would be changed because the government doesn’t want people waiting on line at the local DMV when they should be practicing social distancing because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Real ID driver’s licenses must meet security standards laid out in the Real ID Act of 2005. More data is required for the issuance of Real IDs, and compliant IDs are to have security features intended to prevent tampering or counterfeiting.
