Real ID Act

Minnesota is not in compliance with the Real ID Act of 2005 and there is a possibility that Minnesota Driver's Licenses or Identification Cards may not be used for domestic air travel starting in January 2018. Federal officials may continue to accept Enhanced Driver's Licenses from Minnesota. Passport books or cards and MN Enhanced Driver's Licenses are solutions to this situation because these forms meet the requirements of the Real ID Act.
