The REAL-ID Act: What it is and how it will effect you as a skate traveler
POSTED 1.12.20

PHOENIX, AZ  –  The Department of Homeland Security has made it official where beginning October 1, 2020, every traveler will need to be REAL ID-compliant to travel within the United States or abroad, even if you have TSA Pre Check.  What does this mean?  Tightened security measures have been put in place to screen domestic travelers.  This is an additional layer of security that you will need to be able to board a plane.  REAL ID is obtained and presented through your government issued driver’s license.  If you plan to travel by air, you will need to visit your local Bureau of Motor Vehicles to get a new license. 

Before you go, check online to see what kind of documents and fees are required by your state to receive your ID. 

If you have not yet obtained your REAL-ID, you have less than 10 months.  The longer you wait, the more likely you may have to wait I long lines or have to delay your planned skate travel that will occur after October 1.
