Renewing your ID? Get the REAL ID
In less than 18 months, you will be required to present a REAL ID or passport at TSA checkpoints within the US for all flights. Your current non-REAL ID won’t be valid starting October 1st, 2020. If you are renewing your driver’s license, it’s worth the extra hassle to provide the documents for the REAL ID.
The requirements for California residents can be found here: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/realid.
