Air Travel Alert

  • Why do I need a Real ID to travel?

    • Federal law requires new security rules for which forms of identification can be used to:

      • board a domestic flight

      • enter a federal building (such as military bases, federal courthouses, or other federal facilities) 

    • Georgia Real ID issued driver's license and ID meet the set of security standards for identification purposes.  

  • How do you know if your Georgia License or ID is Real ID?

    • Check the upper right-hand corner for a Gold or Black Star.
  • The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) no longer accepts Temporary (Interim) Licenses and ID Cards as proof of identification. Interim driver’s licenses are temporary paper documents and are not currently an acceptable form of ID. If you plan to make changes to your license, please plan ahead. Your permanent license will be received within 30 days.

For more information on travel requirements, please refer to the TSA website.
