SC receives extension for REAL ID compliance

Sen. Carla Nelson Minnesotans can fly worry free

Gov. Mary Fallin and the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety have been notified that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has expanded the state's REAL ID extension until October 10, 2018.

Because Oregon is working to comply with the federal law, the state will likely qualify for additional extensions until it can begin to offer Real ID Act-compliant driver licenses, instruction permits and ID cards, according to the DMV.

The extension means Minnesotans will still be able to board commercial airplanes and access federal facilities with their state-issued driver's licenses and birth certificates come January.

MVD has partnered with Montana State University Billings to develop a public information campaign to relay information to the public regarding REAL ID compliance.

"I am thankful that DHS has recognized Pennsylvania's efforts in becoming compliant with the REAL ID Act", said Governor Wolf.

TSA does not require children under 18 to provide identification when traveling with a companion within the United States.

On Oct. 1, 2020, anyone hoping to board a domestic flight must have a REAL ID license or ID, valid passport, military ID, or other federally approved form of identification.

Lawmakers last session passed House Bill 1845 to bring the state into compliance with the federal Real ID Act. However, back in May, the state began accepting documents so they'd be on file when REAL ID finally goes into effect. It is important to note that all Minnesota citizens will continue to have the choice to have a non-REAL ID driver's license.

MVD Administrator Sarah Garcia said, "This extension gives MVD time to develop business processes, hire new staff, and acquire the necessary equipment needed to implement REAL ID". DHS cautions against assuming that possession of a noncompliant card indicates the holder is an undocumented individual, given that several states issue noncompliant licenses for reasons unrelated to lawful presence.
