New York residents will need an enhanced driver’s license or a REAL ID compatible driver’s license by October 1, 2020, if they want to use it to get on a domestic flight, enter certain federal buildings or enter military bases. With that in mind, it is highly recommended that New Yorkers who plan to travel upgrade from a standard driver’s license to a REAL ID or enhanced license get it sooner, rather than later.
A New York’s REAL ID driver’s licenses has a star in the upper right corner to indicate that it meets federal regulations that establish minimum security standards. The enhanced driver’s license has a U.S. flag on the bottom right of the license.
For more information and details about how to obtain REAL ID driver's license or identification card in new York, and to determine which form of ID is right for you, visit the New York State DMV website. TSA also has a one-minute video that provides information about flying with REAL ID.
