My state is REAL ID compliant. Does that mean my ID is REAL ID complaint?

Not necessarily. Compliant states are allowed to issue both compliant and non-compliant cards.  REAL ID-compliant licenses are marked by a star on the top of the card. Check here for an example of what your ID should look like by state. If you’re still not sure, check your state driver’s licensing agency website on how to obtain a REAL ID compliant card.
