REAL ID "Your 'Visit the Grandkids' Self"
Beginning May 7, 2025, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States.
Check for the star. Generally, REAL ID compliant cards are marked with a star at the top of the card. State-issued enhanced driver's licenses are also acceptable, and marked with a flag. If you’re not sure if your card is REAL ID compliant, contact your state driver’s license agency.
