Do not forget to make sure that your driver license or state issued identification follows the new guidelines set by the Real ID Act. Not every state may ensure compliancy in the same manner, so be sure to follow up with your state's new identification measures. For example, in North Carolina all forms of compliant identification with have a gold star in the top right.
Starting January 22, 2018, domestic air travel for several states has been restricted to compliant identification or having your driver's license/state ID along with another approved form of identification. The following are examples of alternative identification to provide along with a non-compliant license/state id (if needed): U.S. passport/passport card, DHS trusted traveler card, U.S. Department of Defense ID, permanent resident card, border crossing card, DHS-designated enhanced driver's license, federally recognized, tribal-issued photo ID, foreign government-issued passport, etc. Some states have been granted extensions for compliancy, but they will expire by October 10, 2018 unless renewed.
