REAL ID-Compliant Identification

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reminds Utah residents that starting Oct. 1, 2020, travelers will need a REAL ID-compliant form of identification to board a commercial flight. To determine if a Utah driver license is REAL ID-compliant, look for a small star inside a gold circle and the outline of the state of Utah with the words, “UT USA” in the upper right-hand corner. The presence of the icon and words will indicate that the driver license is REAL ID –compliant.
