TSA Agents Giving Travelers Friendly Reminder About Real ID

Transportation Security Administration agents have started offering a friendly reminder to travelers about Real ID compliance. Starting in October 2020, travelers will not be able to fly with just a regular license. A Real ID or a passport will be required — even for domestic flights. The most Real IDs in the state have been issued in Allegheny Co. Pennsylvanians aren’t getting Real IDs as fast as PennDOT would like them to. The Real ID Act was passed after 9/11 to create a single national standard for licenses. In order to get a Real ID, people are required to prove their identity with four forms of ID. They can include a current driver’s license, passport, social security card, utility bill, payroll stub or birth certificate.
