By next October first (2020), if you wish to board a commercial airplane, you will need a Real ID compliant form.
That includes Real ID compliant driver’s licenses.
"In a nutshell, Real ID is the way the federal government knows you are who you say you are on your photo identification," Transportation Security Administration spokesperson Lorie Dankers said at a news conference at the Bismarck Airport.
Other Real ID forms include passports and military ID.
So far, 83,000 North Dakotans have a Real ID compliant driver’s license.
