Does YOUR driver’s license have a gold star? If not, you may not be able to fly in 2020…
The Transportation Security Administration details on their website that they won’t be accepting standard driver’s license as form of identification to board domestic flights.
TSA says that travelers will be required to present a “REAL ID” compliant license in order to travel within the U.S.
Drivers can tell the difference between a REAL ID and a standard license by a gold star generally marked in the upper portion of the card.
If there’s no gold star, then it’s a standard license and not REAL ID compliant.
