Oklahoma granted REAL ID extension through October 2018

Minnesota granted REAL ID grace period through next October

Next door in North Dakota, Department of Transportation officials say federal officials have told them that their state's current driver's licenses can be used until October of 2020 to board airliners and enter federal facilities.

Verifying the applicant doesn't have a current license or ID card in another state.

There is no requirement to show a Real ID Act-compliant ID to enter a federal facility for accessing health or life-preserving services (including hospitals and health clinics), law enforcement (including participating in law enforcement proceedings or investigations), or to participate in constitutionally protected activities (including a defendant's or spectator's access to court proceedings and access by jurors or potential jurors), to vote or register to vote, or to apply for or receive federal benefits.

Justine Whelan, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, said federal officials have been granting extensions on an "ongoing basis".

"I am thankful that DHS has recognized Pennsylvania's efforts in becoming compliant with the REAL ID Act", said Governor Wolf.

Iran nuclear deal: Tehran threatens to 'shred' agreement if United States withdraws support
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei attends a meeting with students in Tehran, Iran, October 18, 2017. If Trump ditched the deal, "Iran will shred it".

While Real ID licenses are not yet available, Minnesotans can now get an enhanced driver's license, which meets Real ID standards. "But it requires time, resources and training to meet the full requirements, which we will likely be phasing in over time due to budget constraints". The agency is also providing more than two years advance notice of implementation with respect to domestic air travel to allow ample time for all states to achieve compliance, or for potential air travelers to acquire an alternate form of ID if their state does not comply with REAL ID. OR is targeting July 2020 to begin offering compliant cards as a new option for customers.

More than 65,000 South Carolinians have brought the required REAL ID documents to SCDMV branches across the state since May 15, 2017.

Minnesota has lagged behind other states in implementing the Real ID Act, which Congress passed in 2005.

If you received your first SC license or ID during or after November 2010 or moved to the state after being licensed or holding an ID in another state and changed your out-of-state license or ID to a SC card during or after November 2010, the required documents may already be on file with the agency.
