Real IDs to be Issued in Missouri

Missouri is finally becoming Real ID compliant! Here’s how you can get your new ID.

As part of my turning 30, I had to update my license and I’ll be honest, I was dragging my feet because of this whole Real ID compliance thing here in Missouri. I didn’t want to get one ID and then need another!

I think Missouri is one of the few states left to still get with the program.

We’ve been granted numerous extensions, but time’s up!

The first Real ID compliant Missouri IDs will be issued starting in a couple weeks here, March 25!

Juuuust after I got my license last month- go figure!

The good news is, even if you don’t have a Real ID yet, you won’t need a passport to board domestic flights.

You don’t have to rush out to get you Missouri Real ID yet, because you can still board domestic flights with your old ID through September 30, 2020.

So that’s the good news!

This whole thing is pretty messed up to me, I don’t know what the big problem was in the first place…something to do with documents stored in a federal database or whatnot.

Point is we’re on the right track!

Real IDs starting on March 25 of this year!
