Travel without a Real ID in 2018 will be challenging for 10 states

REAL ID Federal Enforcement Act passed by Congress in 2005 “set standards for issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses”.  This is going to be enforced in early 2018.  I am sure these 10 states will do something.. just no idea what yet?

All non-compliant states/territories will be subject to REAL ID enformcement at TSA checkpoints

I have started to see posters pop up in airports.  Basically you are going to have a bad day (I’m sure something will be done) if you try to use a drivers license from these states
