Air Travel Alert

  • Why do I need a Real ID to travel?

    • Federal law requires anyone who boards a domestic flight or enters a federal building to have a verified license or ID. The Law goes into effect on May 3, 2023. If your license or ID is not a Real ID document, you will need to provide additional identification.

  • 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.
