IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE REAL ID ACT
The Real ID Act imposes certain requirements on travel and other activity. One of the most important things to know about the Real ID Act is that as of the end of 2019 Oklahoma is not in compliance with the Act. This means your state issued ID or driver’s license will not pass muster if you try to board a plane or travel outside of the country. Fortunately, Oklahoma has been granted an extension and compliant ID’s will be available starting April 30, 2020. Because more than 2 million Oklahomans will need to get a new ID to comply with the Act, it is critical to keep up with the status of the roll out, so you can take care of your license in a timely manner. Right now, without a compliant ID most travelers have resorted to getting a passport, but that number is still not at 100%.
