  • Beginning October 1, 2020, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of ID. The TSA currently accepts several other forms of identity documents, such as passports, and will continue to do so when flying within the United States. REAL ID-compliant cards are generally marked with a star located in the upper portion of the card.
