REAL ID-Compliant Identification
The original deadline of Oct. 1, 2020 for Utah residents needing a REAL ID-compliant form of identification to board a commercial flight has been moved to May 3, 2023.
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.
