Ohio's Real ID

Beginning May 3, 2023, the federal government will no longer consider standard driver licenses and identification cards as sufficient forms of identification for air travel for travelers 18 years of age and older. TSA (Transportation Security Administration) will require a federally-compliant driver license, identification card, or other acceptable form of identification such as a U.S. passport or military ID to fly within the U.S. Ohio driver licenses and identification (ID) cards issued prior to July 2, 2018, will not be accepted by the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) after May 3, 2023. The Compliant and Standard cards cost the same.

If you want to be able to use your Ohio driver license or ID card to board a plane after May 3, 2023, you can renew early and follow the guidelines for issuance of a Compliant Card.
