Updating Your FL Driver’s License for Real ID Act Compliance

The Real ID Act is intended to prevent identity fraud, so starting on Oct. 1, 2020, all fliers who reside in the United States, even if they’re flying domestically, will need Real ID identification to pass through TSA security checkpoints at airports.

DMV employees need to be able to verify an applicant’s identity and lawful status with USCIS. In order to get a Real ID-compliant license, residents must physically go to the DMV office with their identification documents such as a birth certificate and passport.

US citizens who do not have a passport are encouraged to obtain one so that they can obtain the Real ID compliant driver license (currently only 40% of the population has a passport). If your Florida driver license was issued prior to 2010 or does not have a yellow star on the upper right-hand corner, it may not be compliant.
