The deadline for Real ID to take effect has been postponed by one year.

Federal enforcement was to start October 1 of this year, but due to the pandemic the deadline is now October 1, 2021.

Read ID is an added feature on a driver’s license that will let you board planes and gain access to federal buildings.

Congress initially passed the Real ID law in 2005.
