What does it mean if a state is not REAL ID compliant and only has an extension?

TSA is currently accepting all driver’s licenses and identification from states that are compliant, or have an extension from DHS. Information on state compliance can be found on the DHS web page for REAL ID here.  Beginning October, 1, 2020, TSA will only accept compliant state-issued identification.
