Relax, Minnesotans, your driver's licenses will work at the airport one more year, feds say


October 19, 2017

The federal government said Wednesday that it would accept Minnesota’s current driver’s licenses at airports and other checkpoints through October 10, 2018, according to state and federal officials.

The long-awaited extension on the federal Real ID law, gives the state — and its anxious citizens — some breathing room. The federal government will start to enforce the 2005 Real ID law in January next year but Minnesota will not start issuing Real ID compliant state licenses until October 2018.
