TSA provides clarity on Real ID

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - ​By October 1 of next year, everyone who plans to fly will need a real ID.

It looks like a standard drivers license but has a star in the corner.

The TSA says that after the deadline you won't be able to fly domestically with a standard driver's license.

It will still accept passports and a few other forms of identification.

"We need to make sure that people are who they say they are to make sure that we have that extra layer of security when it comes to driver's licenses a little tougher than we have in most states, and North Dakota is not unique in this aspect. This is happening across the country," said Lorie Dankers, TSA Spokesperson.

You can get your Real ID at the Department of Transportation. Make sure you bring proof of legal residence in the U.S. and the state and your social security number.
