LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK
ARE TRAVEL PLANS IN YOUR FUTURE?
As the holiday season approaches many of us make plans to visit friends and family out of state. This may just be a short “over the river and through the woods” to grandma’s house, or it might include a flight. If you do have travel plans that include flying, you need to know what type of ID is required to board a plane. For domestic flights it is usually enough to present a valid driver’s license, but the Real ID Act requires a bit more if your ID is from a state that is noncompliant – even if your plans do not take you outside the country. But if you don’t have a passport, there is no need to worry just yet. The Federal Government has given Oklahoma until October 10, 2019 to become Real ID Act compliant, meaning your state issued ID will still work for boarding a domestic flight. Take heed though if you plan to fly internationally, where a passport is still required. Safe travels everyone, and happy holidays!
