Real ID-compliant licenses now available in MissouriPosted on 25 March 2019 at 11:52am
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Department of Revenue is now offering licenses and identifications that comply with stricter federal identification requirements under the Real ID Act.
Missourians starting on Monday can apply for an updated driver's or non-driver license.
Real ID-compliant identification will be required to board planes and enter certain federal buildings in October 2020. Passports and some other federally issued identification also will qualify.
Until then, current state-issued licenses will work.
Some Missouri lawmakers worried about privacy pushed back against compliance for years. But a Missouri law that took effect in 2017 gives residents the option to get compliant driver's licenses or other ID cards.
