It happens to be the dealine to change over our New York State driver's licenses, as well as non driver ID cards. Soon our curent ones won't be good enough. We'll all need to switch to the REAL ID, which is going to bring us some real changes.
Your new driver's license and ID will contain more security and safety features. It will enable you to fly within the United States with the license, ID or Enhanced Driver License (EDL). To date we've been able to fly with our standard issue Department of Motor Vehicle licenses, but we'll need the new ones in the future. They will be introduced October 1, 2020.
