REAL ID update - Federal Identification for Travel and entering secure federal facilities
The federal REAL ID Act places new rules on which forms of identification may be used to board flights within the United States and enter secure federal facilities, such as military bases, federal courthouses, and other federal facilities.
The Federal Government will begin enforcing REAL ID on October 1, 2021 (one year later than previously announced).
A California issued REAL ID driver license or identification card meets these new requirements and is marked with a gold bear and star. For Californians wishing to apply for the REAL ID here is the link:
