PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Time is running out to make sure you have the right ID to get through airport security. The TSA is reminding travelers that you won’t be able to board a plane without a Real ID or passport starting in October 2020.
Congress mandated the Real IDs back in 2005 based on a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission that set national security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses.
Real IDs are available now in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
New Jersey received an extension and the state plans to start issuing them later this year.
