Feds Grant Maine's Request For Another REAL ID Waiver

Sample SC Drivers License

The federal Department of Homeland Security has given Oregon another one-year extension for compliance with the federal Real ID Act, the Oregon DMV announced Thursday.

"If we had not passed this bill that I sponsored, then come January, drivers licenses would not have been accepted on commercial airlines and through all this past year, driver's licenses would not be accepted as IDs on any federal building or property", he says.

You do not need a REAL ID-compliant card to do numerous things your current license allows you to do. Every air traveler will need a Real ID-compliant license or passport starting October 1, 2010, according to DPS.

Virginia and SC are only two of the 21 states not in compliance that received extensions. That option comes with an additional $15 fee and is available only at 14 licensing stations around the state.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission's recommendation that the federal government "set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses".

TSA does not require children under 18 to provide identification when traveling with a companion within the United States.

Homeland Security began enforcing the requirements in 2013, and Montana received two extensions but was denied a third last October because of the state law.

The requirements for commercial driver's license and identification card holders or global customers are different.

Columbia, S.C (WSPA) South Carolina will have a little more time to issue drive'rs licenses that meet the minimum federal standard for security. However, back in May, the state began accepting documents so they'd be on file when REAL ID finally goes into effect. In fact, some states now issue such noncompliant cards to undocumented individuals.
