DHS Announces New Extension of Real ID Full Enforcement Deadline.
New Deadline to Get Your Real ID Driver's License in California.
The federal government has extended the deadline to get your Real ID yet again, meaning you now have until May 7, 2025 before you'll need the new kind of driver's license to pass through airport security.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced its intent to extend the REAL ID full enforcement date by 24 months, from May 3, 2023 to May 7, 2025.
Under the new regulations published to execute this change, states will now have additional time to ensure their residents have driver’s licenses and identification cards that meet the security standards established by the REAL ID Act.
As required by the law, following the enforcement deadline, federal agencies, including the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), will be prohibited from accepting driver’s licenses and identification cards that do not meet these federal standards.
