Texas Driver License, REAL ID, and You

Texas Driver License, REAL ID, and You


 
Please be advised that beginning October 1, 2020, federal agencies will only accept Texas driver licenses and identification cards for official federal purposes - including air travel and entering federal facilities - provided the Texas driver license or identification card is marked REAL ID compliant. REAL lD compliance is indicated by a gold circle with an inset star located on the upper right of the driver license or identification card. For additional information regarding the REAL ID Act, please visit http://www.dps.texas.gov/DriverLicense/federalRealIdAct.htm.
 
Texas Department of Public Safety strongly encourages you to renew your license prior to October 1, 2020, to ensure that you have a REAL lD compliant card. If you already have a REAL ID compliant card, as indicated with a Gold Star in the upper righthand corner, you do not need to take any action before October 1, 2020.
 
If you have any questions, please email realid@dps.texas.gov.
