Real ID: Required for VA License Holders at Airports

Beginning on October 1, 2020 the federal government will require you to present this upgraded REAL ID compliant credential or another form of approved identification in order to board a domestic flight or to access secure federal facilities. The credential is completely optional. If you won’t need it, you don’t need to get it. Find more about this topic here: https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/drivers/#real_id.asp
