REAL ID at DAL
Starting Oct. 1, 2020, all travelers 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant form of identification to board flights at all U.S. airports, including Dallas Love Field.
Travelers can determine if their drivers license is REAL ID-compliant by looking for the cutout of a star in a gold background in the upper right-hand corner of the license.
The Transportation Security Administration recommends that travelers make plans to get a REAL ID now, rather than waiting until the deadline passes.
Travelers who do not have a REAL ID may use a U.S. passport, military ID or other form of approved identification.
Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission's recommendation that the federal government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.”
