SC receives extension for becoming REAL ID compliant

SC receives extension for becoming REAL ID compliant”

Now the state - along with OR and Idaho - has an extension through October 10, 2018, according to REAL ID website. This extension means South Carolina's current, unexpired driver's licenses and identification cards will continue to be accepted to board domestic flights, enter secure federal buildings, and visit military installations through October 10, 2018.

Until then, Montana driver's licenses will be accepted by the Transportation Security Administration to board domestic, commercial flights and to access federal facilities. DHS continually updates this list as more states come into compliance or obtain extensions. The new driver license and ID card system will include the Real ID Act-compliant card option. For a list of states already in compliance or with an extension visit DHS's REAL ID webpage.

There is no requirement to show a Real ID Act-compliant ID to enter a federal facility for accessing health or life-preserving services (including hospitals and health clinics), law enforcement (including participating in law enforcement proceedings or investigations), or to participate in constitutionally protected activities (including a defendant's or spectator's access to court proceedings and access by jurors or potential jurors), to vote or register to vote, or to apply for or receive federal benefits. However, it costs an additional $15 for the card holder and requires multiple documents to apply, such as a US passport, original birth certificate, original social security card, a utility bill, and a pay stub.

Starting Jan. 22, 2018, travelers who do not have a license from a compliant state or a state that has been granted an extension (a complete list of non-compliant states/ territories can be found here) will be asked to provide alternate acceptable identification.

The most common federal use of state-issued ID is for air travel. "Fallin's leadership in signing REAL ID into law".

The state offers, but does not mandate, enhanced driver's licenses and IDs that require proof of USA citizenship and are valid under the federal law. However, back in May, the state began accepting documents so they'd be on file when REAL ID finally goes into effect. This includes, but is not limited to, military bases and nuclear power plants.
