This Needs To Appear On Your License If You Plan On Traveling Next Year!

If you don’t have a gold star on your state-issued ID or driver’s license, it won’t be considered a valid form of identification when you travel after October 2020. Travelers will need to update their state-issued ID or driver’s license to comply with the 2005 REAL ID act, which has created minimum security standards for state-issued IDs.

According to the Department of Public Security website, Real ID compliant cards are marked with a star which appears in the upper right corner above the expiration date. You can find out if your ID is compliant through the DPS website. If your ID doesn’t have a star, you can always apply for a new state ID or driver’s license online.

Beginning October 2020, all travelers over the age of 18 will need to have a REAL ID card.Don’t have an ID card with you? No worries, you can use other forms of identity documents approved by TSA such as:

  • Department of Homeland Security trusted traveler card
  • U.S. Department of Defense ID
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Employment Authorization Card
  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • Permanent Resident Card

So if you plan on traveling out of the country you better make this happen!!!
