NY Begins Issuing REAL IDs:


Monday the New York DMV began issuing REAL ID driver’s licenses.  On October 1st 2020, the federal government will require driver’s licenses, permits or ID cards to be REAL ID compliant in order to board domestic flights, enter military bases and to enter certain federal facilities.  The REAL ID Act, which was passed in 2005, establishes minimum security standards for state-issued driver licenses, permits, and ID cards.  You can also use an enhanced driver’s license, permit, or non-driver ID card or a valid U.S. Passport or other identification acceptable to the federal government.  A REAL ID is not needed to be able to drive, vote or register to vote, to apply or receive federal benefits, to participate in law enforcement proceedings or investigations, or to access federal facilities that do not require a person to show identification.  There is no additional cost for the REAL ID; however, normal fees still apply.  Officials say you can convert your current driver’s license at any time.  Any license, permit, or ID card issued after October 30th that is not a REAL ID will be marked with “Not for Federal Purposes.”
