Due to circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the national emergency declaration, the Department of Homeland Security, as directed by President Donald J. Trump, is extending the REAL ID enforcement deadline beyond the current October 1, 2020 deadline. They have determined that states require a twelve-month delay and that the new deadline for REAL ID enforcement is October 1, 2021.
